BP coffee and blackout / fainting / syncope
I've been on BP coffee for 4 years and rarely eat breakfast unless traveling. My BP coffee is a big mug with 20g grass-fed butter, 1 tbsp coconut, 1 tbsp mct oil.
I don't want to cause alarm, but this did alarm me 4 days ago when I blacked out just after finishing my coffee. There was just one gulp left and for some reason, I almost didn't want it (more butter than usual), which also caused me to burp just afterward. I broke out in a cold sweat and then I slumped my head and was gone, maybe for up to 10 minutes as far as I can reconstruct the event. It was about 9 am and I was sitting at my desk. When I was conscious I didn't immediately know whether it was day or night. After gaining strength to arise, I changed location and continued sweating for a time. My face was very pallor. Shortly after I arose, I showed and went immediately to the Doc.
Pending appointments in the next few days with specialists, I wanted to post my experience here.
Has anybody else had an adverse reaction to the large amounts of fat which we consume regularly in our BP coffee? I have never passed out before, but on a few rare occasions, I did feel a bit nauseous.
I have been researching causes for a syncope (the medical term for a blackout / passing out / fainting)
Wikipedia states as a possible cause: Deglutition (Swallowing) syncope
Syncope may occur during deglutition. Manisty et al. note: "Deglutition syncope is characterised by loss of consciousness on swallowing; it has been associated not only with ingestion of solid food, but also with carbonated and ice-cold beverages, and even belching."
It points to this matter possibly being a stomach related issue.
Perhaps this thread will add to the huge information resource here.
I am incredibly grateful for all those who dedicate their time and experience here in helping others. I once was able to do the same in several other fora, often spending hours on end answering questions, which in turn gave me great personal satisfaction.
