Thanks for the query

I am assuming CT brain is normal. Since the ECG is has shown some changes, 24 hour Holter monitoring is an excellent way to know in detail about variations in rhythm at different times. The cause for an abnormal ECG depends on what ECG changes were noted. Please get back to me and let me know what abnormality they found.

Tilt table test is done to know autonomic disturbances,autonomic disturbances bring about dizziness, light headedness and fainting spells.

I would like to add here that your doctors are investigating you well and this is the right way to investigate for fainting spells

I advice you to wait for the test results, depending the results treatment can be initiated

I hope I was of help
