Fainting on the toilet

Sometimes when i get really bad cramps and go to the toilet i become really light headed, hear only ringing and get chills. does anyone know what this is? is it preventable?

    It's not really preventable but at least you know you are not alone with this and you are not going mad!


    All the best, Maureen
