Sudden giddiness, uneasiness and fainting. Suggestions and remedies?

My wife aged 36 had giddiness yesterday. We just started our shopping and she was standing in a shop. suddenly she felt uneasiness. We made het sit on a chair. After a few seconds she became unconsious. We sprinkled water on her face and after a few seconds she opened her eyes. Then she took rest for 10-15 minutes in the shop and then we moved out. That time she felt like gas coming out of mouth from stomach . She was feeling uneasiness and giddiness feeling for another 1 hour or so. There after she was normal. Some months back also she had similar uneasiness but she did not become unconcious. Please give some suggestions/remedies

Thank you for posting your query.

Your wife needs to be evaluated to find out the reason for her unconsciousness. The causes could range from simple exhaustion to lack of blood flow to brain and heart problems.

Initially, please consult a physician, and get her haemoglobin, blood sugar and cholesterol checked up.

Later on, she may need neurology and cardiology evaluation, if no causes are found.

In addition, she has to ensure adequate sleep, regular meal timings, and avoid stress.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
