Brief Answer: yes he needs more investigations Detailed Answer: Hi, Yes I agree with you he should be investigated with MRI brain and ultrasound abdomen ( to rule out adrenal problems) apart from the blood tests. I am sure theory have tested his sugar and blood pressure. Pallor, fainting and hot flashes- a combination of symptoms needs to rule out the following Anemia Adrenal problems Vasovagal attacks. Do not worry. Sure they will complete all investigations. God bless Dr Uma
