Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query very carefully and would like to make some suggestions.

Your symptoms may be related to cardiovascular disorders and should be considered a warning sign for more serious events (including arrhythmia, syncope or stroke). This is why I strongly recommend to schedule a cardiologist appointment.

If you were my patient I would like to do the following examinations for a proper evaluation (in order to exclude any serious problems):
- Blood work
- ECG
- Cardiac echo
- Holter monitoring
- Audiogram
- Stress test

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
