That's not a good situation - it sounds as if you blacked out for a few seconds. Now that could simply be due to the combination of a sudden temporary change in blood pressure due to the combination of coughing, nose blowing and trying to catch your breath, which is not an uncommon event and nothing to be worried about. But it could be a sign of something else more significant, so next time you see your doctor talk to him about it. Obviously if you have more such events - which I hope you don't - you need to talk to him sooner than later

Oh I'll talk to My Doctor about this, I have an appointment on Dec 20th 2017, thanks Rob, Me too.

That should give you an idea if it being a "once off" or "repeating" event.

My coughing was congestion from a cold virus that had been going around here, that is down to once or twice a day.

I got the IR cable in the mail today, it's as described, now I wait for the 2nd main board, all for the Samsung UN55D6050TFxza TV, I don't know if the main board will work, or not, it should, but that is why I got the refurbished TCL 55S401 4K TV, I still need to find the small zip ties in the box here(storage space for anything is scarce here), I need 3 of them.

My 2nd attempt at a replacement mainboard for the Samsung UN55D6050TF 55" 1080P TV, I had planned to put a passive metal heatsink on it from a TCL 55US57 4K TV, this I guess is the sellers cooling solution, thermal pads. I just installed the board, I'm beat, after only 6 screws, I still have a new IR cable to install, tomorrow...

I managed to get the old IR sensor cable off of the Samsung 55" TV, Ugh, but at least the New cable will be easy to install.

I found out the two cables below are almost exactly the same, what is different, one needs to be fixed(UN55D6050TFXZA), the other is undamaged(UN55D6005), yep these two 6000 series Samsung TVs and use a main board like the BN94-05038C.


Now here is something, the board below is a main board made by Samsung, one with a TCL 55US57 donor heatsink, and the same main board without said heatsink, notice the 4 holes around that BIG Silver chip? I did, I noticed something else too, all the C and E models(F to present too) TVs had heatsinks, yet the D's except for a UN40D5550RFXZA main board(BN94-04513B) have holes and no heatsink, the 04513B so far being the exception. Anyway back to the TCL heatsink, it'll need some work to adapt it, the screws do fit in the holes.

Donor Board w/TCL heatsink.

Donor Board w/o TCL heatsink.

I might get some small low profile heatsinks to stick on the 1/8" thick thermal pad in the last pic just as a temp measure, since heat here is the enemy, and kills these chips. The board with the thermal pad is not the Donor, it's the replacement for the Donor board.

Being "beat" after doing only 6 screws? This really concerns me, you should be able to do six small screws without getting exhausted. When did you last have a "spirograph" test to see how well your lungs are working? If not in the last few weeks then its about time your doctor did one as this rapid exhaustion could be related to your recent collapse - normal coughs and colds rarely last more than a couple of weeks, and yours has been dragging on for the best part of a couple of months. It could be that your long term asthma has progressed into COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) - a transition that can be triggered by any number of things such as illness (chronic or otherwise), stress, weight.... Or it might be that your asthma has become "immune" to the control drugs (inhalers, tablets whatever) you are taking so you are due a review to make sure everything is as it should be on that front.

All I am going to say it that if one's breathing is impaired, having to support a lot of extra body mass is certainly going to make the situation worse.

I've come close to blacking out from sneezing a few times. Everything goes really funny for a few seconds with ears ringing and a feeling of zoobing in and out of my head and occasionally my vision goes for a second. It happened while riding my bike once and was way more disconcerting than the sneeeze spray on the petrol tank, :-)

Getting dizzy is one thing. Fainting dead away and waking to find yourself trying to pick yourself up off the floor is something different. Either a lack of oxygen or blood pressure dropping way too low, usually.

I am quite sure that Vic knows what the score is, he is intelligent enough, he lives with it every day. He knows that at some point in the future the game will be up, and that he'll end up in hospital or a care home. Meanwhile he's playing both ends against the middle to put it off as long as possible. I worry more about Grace.

I am NOT trying to be insulting, but the single best thing that Vic could do for himself and his health would be to achieve some very serious weight loss.
He would improve his quality of life on so many fronts.
And believe me, I do know that changing habits to improve one's life does not come easily.

I'm 6'1" tall, have a Hiatal Hernia since at least 3yrs old, and I have back pain when standing for more than a few minutes, but then I'm about 414lbs in weight, or about the weight of a full grown male Bengal tiger, which I think is 400lbs...

I don't have COPD, My heart is ok, and is not 2 sizes too small, and My Doctor said My lungs are ok, last time I visited He said outside of some congestion, My lungs are ok, no pneumonia either.

I was coughing then too, I have a little congestion still. Which is slowly going away, as it should.
