Am I seriously fainting every day?

I get these weird things about 5-7 times a day. They're getting more frequent: I'm sitting down I'd laying down or even just standing then when I move around my vision goes black, I get extreemly dizzy and dioriented and sometimes fall down. My doctor said it's normal because the test results were normal. I've done some tests myself and it's worse when I don't drink enough water, and / or drinking caffeine and/or when I'm tired and /or when I just wake up from a nap. I don't trust my doctor. Anyone know what they are? Oh, and I get a throbbing headache afterwards. Sometimes the headache lasts for 20 seconds to 5 minutes and can get so bad that I actually puked from the pain once.

My husband and I had dinner last night and he felt like it was very heavy for his stomach, he was burping and couldn t digest the food very well, we went to bed and at 3AM he got up to go to the restroom and passed out, he blacked out and felt on the floor. I called 911 and the paramedics said he had an indigestion and said he would be fine. Right now he has a headache and has been vomiting all night…is this a serious condition or he is just dehydrated and will get back to normal in a day?

Hi, I am a 21-year-old female. For the last day or two I have been feeling a little faint and have been experiencing mild but noticeable heart palpitations. I am a healthy weight, my diet is good, I ensure I am drinking plenty of fluids and have no serious health issues. The only thing that may be of note is a diagnosis of bradycardia with a BPM of 56 and consequent to this a slightly lower than normal blood pressure rate. Could these be contributing to my recent feelings of faintness and awareness of my heart beating?

I have been having terrible swelling in my ankles feet and legs even so bad I can t wear my shoes only flip flops. This has been going on for over four weeks. I went to the doctor over ten days ago and was prescribed diaretics which seem to help but today I got dizzy and nearly fainted. Can you tell me is this something serious or is it down to circulation problems due to me being overweight? Thanks

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I had an MRI which showed stable microvascular ischemia white matter changes without demylinization. I am a 34 year old, 284 lb woman with a hx of migraines with aura. The MRI was done because the aura prior to a migraine changed from the electrical current type to seeing tracers. For the past few months I have had chronic headaches, not just the hormonal migraines I typically see. I take Fioricet for my headaches because nothing else has seemed to work. I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol issues despite being morbidly obese. I do not have pre-diabetes or other blood sugar issues. My mother has a hx of TIA s, diagnosed when she was 40. I am still waiting for a neuro appt because the neurologist wants to review all of my medical files before setting the appointment. 1. How does the radiologist know the changes are stable when I have never had these show up on an MRI before? 2. Could this be migraine related as opposed to TIA s? 3. What can I do to prevent the changes from becoming chronic?
