It's not a pain. It just feels like a blackout.

That is not normal. Ask your doctor about this or go to the emergency ward at the hospital.

Either -
You aren't able to get to a doctor and are feeling scared about it and need reasurrance that it IS normal or what to do if it isn't.
or
You are a post troll and know people will say just say "go see a doctor this isn't a place to get medical advice"

Are you a smoker?
Do you have anxiety?
Do you exercise regularly?
Are you over weight?
Do you eat a lot of junk?
Do you not eat regularly or properly?


If you get dizzy when you take a deep breathe - don't take deep breaths.

I search the internet - which i would assume you did aswell... and it didn't really come up anything - mostly stress relief exercises.

There are many factors that may contribute to this condition. You really should keep an eye on it - dont take deep breaths if it makes you dizzy and ultimately, see a doctor and get a medical oppinion about how to solve the problem or find the route cause of it.

I had a panic attach once and it started with just not being able to catch my breath and trying to breath deeper and just getting more out of breath and dizzy. I didn't pass out thank god, cause they were trying to call 911, but I refused (I was consious and still able to make decisions). In retrospect I would have yelled at someone else if they told me that they refused 911, but i was with people who had first aid skills so felt 911 would have been over kill. I just focus on my breathing and only on my breathing and got that under control so i would not passout. It was a pretty scary experience.

Breathing deep and feeling dizzy... ANY NUMBER OF REASONS.

It could be asthma, as well.

Go to a Dr.... right away. Good luck!

I think its normal, when you intake deep breath, because your blood (hemoglobin) is almost always saturated 100% by oxygen at the lung, it does not give you extra oxygen. However, you are exhaling resulting in a decrease in partial pressure of CO2. In order for hemoglobin to release its oxygen content, it needs an environment of high partial pressure of CO2, ie. your muscle. But because your Pco2 is low, your blood is not unloading as much O2 as your body needed. If this occur in the brain, then you might experience dizziness.

You should just pace your breathing.
