Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

The fainting episodes may be due to the following things:

Postural hypotension

Vasovagal syncope

Heart rhythm abnormalities


Atonic seizures.

But without a physical examination and a minimum basic investigation, coming to a conclusion in your case it is very difficult.

One thing I can advise you to meet a Pediatrician for the physical examination to look for anemia, postural hypotension, any signs of vertigo, nystagmus, and to examine your cardiovascular and nervous system.

Further investigations like CBP, 24 hour EKG (Holter) monitoring, EEG, and special test for vertigo to rule out any pathology.

Hope I have answered your query.
