Hot flushes and palpitations, period pain, exhaustion, headache, ringing in ears. Remedies?

I've been feeling unwell the past week putting the random feelings of hot flushes and palpitations down to bad period pain and exhaustion. Yesterday night I fainted and hit my head on the floor, I came to with a headache and ringing in my ears which hasn't really gone away and am still having some hot flushes/feelings of palpitations.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST / Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). / Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly or precipitated by a specific activity like exercise, one needs Holter or event monitor.

     ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance. With hot flushes, Pheochromocytoma may have to be to be evaluated... The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

     The body's balancing mechanism is in the inner ear. An ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist is the one to see - especially in the presence of tinnitus. They have special tests to confirm or exclude the contribution of the ear - which probably is the case with you.
     If there are no clues, you have to be followed up by a neurologist.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
