1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, definitely

Yes, through hypotension, an uncontrolled drop in blood pressure.
This can definitely be a problem in paralyzed patients. It is rarely a problem in broken necks not associated w/ paralysis. Talk to ur doctor, as there are many causes of blackouts. A good internist or family doc can figure it out. And remember, even w/ a broken neck, one can have the mundane problems we all have (heart dz, etc.)
