I’m currently having near-blackout episodes, please advise?
I’m a male to female gender fluid person. Biologically a male, I dress in female attire from time to time. I’m currently having near-blackout episodes directly linked to constrictive clothing. Specifically, I wear what amounts to a girdle with sew-in hip padding. It’s snug NOT tourniquet tight. I get a headache & a feeling like I’m not getting oxygen to my brain. It’s more than a little scary thinking I’m about to pass out. The issue has developed over the past 1.5 years or so. All history un-remarkable except high bp and I’m on low dose beta blocker. Checked my bp during events and its within normal range. Obviously haven’t done it lately except for brief times just to reconfirm its an ongoing issue.
Medications: Metoprolol Succinate (25mg every other day), Lamictal 225/day
General Information: Nope. Too embarrassing. I probably will depending on your answer.
