This 32-Year-Old Woman Who Faints Everytime She Sees An Attractive Man

Kristy Brown of Northwich, Cheshire, has cataplexy – a condition where any strong emotion has the potential to cause her to lose control of her body. So, if Kristy sees someone who makes her feel attracted, she will immediately freeze and fall to her knees.

It’s not just dandy men that can affect Kristy, but even loud noises, feelings of anger, fear, or laughter can trigger a similar reaction. Therefore, the mother of two must always look at the ground when walking in public to avoid injuring herself if she accidentally falls.

If Kristy sees someone who makes her feel attracted, she will immediately freeze and fall to her knees.

Kristy said that it’s embarrassing for her. Once, when she was shopping and she saw a handsome man, her legs went limp and she had to cling to her cousin. She has to try her best not to put herself in situations where she would faint or have to stay awake for her own safety.

On average, Kristy has five episodes of cataplexy per day. But on bad days, she can have up to 50 bouts – that is, unable to leave the house. This condition is often associated with a sleep disorder and is caused by a faulty gene.

Kristy added that it is like a sleep disorder. When she doesn’t get enough sleep or doesn’t sleep well, she would get tired and have more attacks than usual. It’s like the blood to the brain is suddenly interrupted and she just can’t control my legs. She can even have a seizure on the stairs if the stairs are too steep because she is afraid of heights.

Kristy said that it’s embarrassing for her.

Kristy’s condition flared up early after a head injury when she was 9 years old. The mother-of-two said that she and some friends kicked a tree to get some horse chestnuts, but a stone hit her in the head. Either way, she ended up suffering from cataplexy because it was a genetic fault.
