Fainting episodes on exposure to warm weather. Low iron levels. What is this situation called?

From age 6 to 16, I had frequent fainting spells or loss control of my body movement when I left an extremely cold building and walked outside on warm days. I had another episode today and I am 43 years old. I felt like my eyes were trying to roll to the back of my head and I felt as though I had no control of my motor skills. It lasted for anout 1 min. A couple of weeks ago, I was diagnosed with low iron. Is there a medical term for my condition?

Should see a neurologist regarding your fainting spells. Your low iron could be related to a poor diet, blood loss,etc which your physician will investigate. Take care

Your symptoms can be due to anemia as your iron is low .Faintaing spells can be due to hypoglycemia (low blood glucose ) , Hypotension (low b.p ) or Low Hemoglobin. First rule out all these .If every thing is ok then you should consult Neurologist
