Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. One of the common causes for your symptoms could be cardiac arrhythmia (an abnormal heart rhythm), which can be diagnosed by Holter monitoring. I note that it was already done, and so, this condition has been excluded. The other condition to exclude would be a seizure, for which a prolonged overnight video EEG may be done. I hope it helps. please get back if you have any follow up queries. Best wishes, Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad
