Thin blood vessel: I am guessing that you have a subconjunctival hemorrhage - bleeding under the thin, transparent lining over the white sclera.

I get hyperventilation &passout for 15 min when am angry, tired or bad weather it feels like I am paralyzed i can hear & sense tests r normal, help!   ?

Confusing: Hyperventilation comes frequently with anxiety attacks -- i don't know whether this could be causing your "passout" episodes or not. You say you can hear when you are passed out, so you are not unconscious. Feeling paralyzed could be a symptom of anxiety also. Please see your physician to explore these episodes further. You may need treatment for panic attacks or ongoing anxiety. ...Read more
