Hello & thank you for
submitting your question.

Your symptoms are worrisome especially with your history of epilepsy, as the sensation of nearly passing out may be due to a variety of causes, such as cardiac, metabolic, neurological, or even infection. This feeling might also be caused by dehydration or medication effect. A physical examination by a physician is the best way to determine what is the exact causal factor in your case. Please see a physician at your soonest convenience for a complete evaluation and assessment.

Sincerely,
