I fainted two times in my life. It started out as a headache & lightheadedness but it progressed into nausea & I started to sweat + my heart started beating weird. I would recommend drinking electrolyte water & seeing if it goes away if not maybe you might need to break your fast earlier. Trust me fainting is no fun.

I used to pass out a crap load. usually everything will look fuzzy and you will just feel extremely light. personally, Ive never had much time to wonder "am I passing out!?" before I hit the floor/start stumbling around. good luck!

Sometimes it's like when you stand up too fast and your vision starts getting a little dark and fuzzy, except it goes all the way to solid black and suddenly you've woken up on the floor. Super quick and unpredictable. Other times it starts with a headache and nausea and then progresses to weakness and dizziness and then you just can't hold your body up anymore, and you pass out. Not a fun experience but you can definitely tell you're gonna pass out soon.

I get really warm and my heartbeat goes crazy, with some nausea. I can always feel it coming on.

It depends really. When it's from low blood sugar, I feel super weak (of course) and my lips/mouth will start to tingle.

But I've also fainted from hypotension. And that time, the main symptom was that my head was hurting.

I get super dizzy with a really bad headache and I start to feel pain and the scariest thing is that my hearing goes like I can be amongst the loudest people ( I have passed out a school and in a club so very loud places) and everything will go quiet....

I'm not sure if I experience the same things as you could, but for me it's:
- feeling weak as soon as I wake up
- being light-headed more than 2 times in the morning

And just before fainting:
- like a black veil, everything goes dark
- muffled sounds, as if I was going deaf
- hot flushes

Please OP be really careful,
Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I think it's a sign to break your fast

for me: vision starts getting fucked up, tingly feeling, weakness, ears ringing or can't hear, heart beating very hard/fast

 

if you feel like you might faint please sit/lay somewhere safe to avoid hurting yourself, and eat if you can

This was about how it was for me the one time I fainted. I felt tingly and dizzy and stopped being able to think straight. I thought standing up would help... Spoiler alert I was on the floor not 30 seconds later.

I've only actually passed out once. I wasn't even restricting but I'd done a bunch of walking on holiday and got flu anyway..

 

I felt generally unwell I had a headache which turned into a migraine (effected vision) then I felt really really hot like a hot flush right before it happened.

 

I'd say try sit down as much as possible, perhaps a cold drink and try eat a little something if you can, perhaps sugar helps? a biscuit maybe ...  

 

Take care<3
