    Is there something wrong with me?

    Something weird happened to me last night, but it's happened one other time before ever since my surgery:

    My mum was plucking my eyebrows, showing me how to pluck them so I could learn to do it myself in the future. I was on my knees, with my head all the way back... and then my vision just went blurry and all I could see was white... and then I felt dizzy, and a little nauseous too...

    Apparently these are symptoms of something called PoTS, but I'm not sure if I have that. Some people have even said it is linked to Scoliosis for some reason...
    Is it possible that I have PoTS, or could it be just a rare event?
    This has only happened to me TWICE since my surgery in July 2013. The other time was November 2013, and then the other time was last night (15th of May 2015).

    I'd suggest that you go and see a specialist or doctor about it. I had something like that happen to me quite a bit before as well. It had to with my bloodsugar levels and the amount of oxygen in my blood. I went and saw a peditrician about it who referred me to a specialist and he helped me lessen the severity of it by quite a bit.

    You don't have to if you don't want to, but that's just my suggestion. Don't want you worrying over this a bunch if you don't in fact have Scoliosis. :T

    @Larkspur
    I actually do have Scoliosis. That's what I had the surgery for - to straighten my spine. We've figured that it's either PoTS, or my head was sitting on something that was just uncomfortable to my body (I think it was the rods it was sat on... idk, I just thought I could actually feel the top of the rod)

    @DauntlessMockingjay Oh my apologies. I didn't realize that that's what you were having the surgery for. Hopefully you get a straight and complete answer at some point.

    If you ever aren't sure about weird symptoms always go to a doctor. No one on fresh has valid expert medical advice that I know of.
    *Google also is clearly medical drop out telling everyone they got cancer haha*
