Hi, thanks for writing in.
I think light headedness and fainting is not related to parkinsonism. It must be vasovagal syncopal attack, which is not uncommon in old age. Nausea and tiring also due the same reason. In this disorder blood gets pooled towards lower limbs due weakned lower limb veins.
You should consult a board certified physician and get evaluated thoroughly. It is important and urgent. Few tests may be necessary like table tilt test to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope I have answered your query. Any follow up questions are welcome.
Thanking you.
