    The First Time I Fainted...That Too In School!

    It happened yesterday. When I woke up in the morning, I felt kind of dazed. As I walked to the bathroom to dress up, I found that my head was spinning a bit. The shapes in front of me were somewhat distant and hazy. Pushing it away as morning sickness, I went to school anyway...

    Was "punished" and stood up

    for 20 minutes,didn't eat/drink a thing for breakfast so that was a reason. I blacked out and the teacher saying "ThePakistaniGuy are you okay?" I was later told I WAS pale should've gone to my seat, I am embarrased. What should I do?
