Thanks for the query,

I have noted your complaints as well as your medical history

The common causes of these episodes are fever, hypoglycemic spells etc. The other, rare possibility could be autonomic neuropathy related to diabetes.

People with thyroid problem are more likely to have this problem

I suggest you to get your basic medical tests done and get examined by a local physician. The treatment will depend upon the cause.

Hope i have clarified your query,
Please get back to me in case of doubts

Best wishes
