What causes tinnitus, headache, dizziness, blurred vision and weakness in the legs?

Question: My daughter suddenly passed out yesterday, she woke up in the morning said she had a loud ringing in her ears, headache, dizziness, blurry vision, and weakness in her legs. She sat down in a chair and fell on the floor, chair and all. It took about a minute before she woke up. I watched it happen. We checked her blood sugar (normal 100) right away. At first, I thought it was just a weird thing. But she slept for hours after and is very pale. Took her to er in the afternoon, ekg, ct-scan, glucose all normal. However, during the six hours we were there I became very concerned over her erratic heart rate. It was in the 90's when we got there.. assumed it was pain and nerves. She was given iv pain medicine and felt better, her heart rate was in the 100's and every time she moved it spiked up to 130-140. Not normal for a healthy, active 15 yr old, who doesn't smoke or do drugs. We are waiting to see her PCP today, who apparently had no openings!! I'm worried there is something wrong with her heart, everytime she tries to get up she feels light headed, her legs are very weak, and she turns so white it's almost blue. I should mention that her father is diabetic, and had a heart transplant at 45...10 years after being diagnosed with CHF. Her two uncles, and grandfather also passed young (40s) from v-fib

Brief Answer:
Consider cardiovascular diseases.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your query and understand your concerns.

In my opinion, in your daughter's case, cardiovascular diseases such anemia, cardiac defects ( foramen ovale aperta, or big vessels transposition ) should be evaluated further.

It is necessary to get evaluated by imaging studies such cardiac ultrasound, blood tests to evaluate possible anemia in order to understand better your daughter's condition.

I will definitely recommend you get a cardiologist referral after PCP visit today. Discuss with a Cardiologist about these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
