Wow, that's not something a healthy person does at work. She has a medical problem.

Delay: Wow, that's not something a healthy person does at work. She has a medical problem.


She said it's happened before when she gets too cold or is at too high an altitude - and her sister has the same problem. I'm guessing it's a form of altitude sickness.  Good on her for being a trooper, and I hope she does as she said she will and gets herself checked out by a doc.
 
2013-12-31 02:05:21 AM
She handled that really well. She also should stay away from the chairlift.
 
2013-12-31 02:11:26 AM
That's just a mild burtation.
 
2013-12-31 02:22:41 AM
If I was nearby when this happened, her first words upon waking would have been, "Hey, where are my jacket, shirt and bra?"

Then, since she obviously recovers quickly, her response would have been to ask if you have legal representation ;)

Don't lock the knees...

Does she drive a car?

Hopefully not in the mountains...

Maintaining balance on skis increases oxygen use, so she was close to passing out to begin with. Then she started talking so she maxed out VO ability while maintaining a calm breath.

I think she needs more cardio training.

Ya as mentioned it's a case of locking the knees. See almost any lengthy standing military formation.

/could be exacerbated by the altitude and cold.

Yes, but the Utah Nordic Alliance of Utah sounds less threatening

And she needs to learn to not lock her knees.

But really farking white.

Texas Nordic Alliance definitely would sound less like an athletic club.

What does locking your knees have to do with anything?  That sounds like an old wives' tale.

Yeah. She didn't even bahanda pet.

Had that happen to me in a wallyworld in 2011. Pickuping up a few things at a late lunch, got dizzy, cracked my head on the floor, woke up in an ambulance. Cost me 3 days in the hospital. Just got dizzy and lost consciousness. Toppled over on the floor, left blood everywhere. Hospital said it was "vertigo", but I know better. Wound up having a stroke in 2013, evidence of a previous stroke, in  2012. Hmmm...

It's not. I damn near passed out standing at attention in boot camp because of this. Some others actually did. They don't tell you not to lock your knees in boot camp. They probably should.

Meh.  I got a bit woozy hiking up a mountain once and freaked out because I thought I had a heart attack or something.  The Doc said it was just altitude sickness and was mildly annoyed with me because her nurses dropped everything to do some kind of chest examine after I brought it up..

I've almost done it and seen people do it.  I've seen a Marine do it while standing beside a US President during some speech (Bush Jr, I think).  Some people call it "mixing the bowl" when they start swaying in an ever-widening circle.
 
2013-12-31 03:37:34 AM
By what she wrote, I would say that her and her twin sister (giggity) are anemic.
 
2013-12-31 03:38:41 AM

Delay: Wow, that's not something a healthy person does at work. She has a medical problem.


No she doesn't. She locked her knees while standing in the same place for a long time. It happened to me when I was in the Army while standing in formation for a lime time while long winded Generals and politicians made speeches for about 3 hours. I was in the best shape of my life when that happened.  No medical problems.

Came for burtation, saw bahanda pet too, left very, very deris derison.

I dunno. That sure sounded a lot like a very very heavay - uh - heaveh burtation. She had a very darist-darison, by, lets go hit teret taysan those to the bet who had the pet. *THUD*

My first week at OCS in Quantico, the guy standing right next to me passed out while we were waiting to begin morning PT. I'll never forget the sound his face made when it bounced off the parade deck (nor will I forget how it felt when my platoon sergeant punched me in the stomach for laughing at him). Some candidates take the phrase "lock it up" way too literally.

They always taught us that in marching band. And sure enough, almost every entering freshman class, some dumb woodwind player would lock her knees up in rehearsal and fall over in the Mississippi heat.

I passed out on air before. It did have quite a bit of nitrous oxide mixed in with it.

Hope she resolves this before she gets to Kolob.

What does a giant spider have to do with anything?

What's with her voice? Rocky Mountain Warbler. Is that a common species?
 
2013-12-31 08:23:32 AM
I'm more impressed by the guy who went along with answering her questions instead of saying, "What the fark is wrong with you??" He didn't miss a beat.

you went to the wrong bootcamp. Fort Jackson Summer 1997, they told us multiple time to not lock our knees. Same thing at Fort Leonardwood in Summer 1998.

Here's a guy passing out on the air but probably for a different reason.

I love XC skiing and I hate it when the media attempts to make it look (zzzzz) boring.

It's not the only cause, though.  I have a friend who passes out when he eats something that's too (temperature-wise) hot.  While seated at the table.  Clearly not a knee issue.

BenJammin: I love XC skiing and I hate it when the media attempts to make it look (zzzzz) boring.


Sorry, but it IS boring.
It compares to those amusement park car ride that follow a track, you can turn the wheel all you want, but you're going where the track goes.

 Now if you do it through untracked woods, O.K.
