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.

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?

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, My father in law has had a mini stroke about 4 months and over the last month has fainted in the garden in the early morning while getting the newspaper at least 3 times, with the last one (two days ago) he blacked out. He can t remember fainting or walking in to the house, only walking to the front door and then sitting at the table eating his cereal. he wear bare feet too on a tiled floor and concrete pathways. He lives with his wife, but in my opinion she is not taking this seriously, as she has never call a doctor or ambulance for help. Plus they go shopping afterwards, he drives. I am concerned of a planned ocean boat trip to New Zealand, they are leaving in 5 days. I know that he needs to see a doctor, but I can t get the family (all four children) to stand up and take control of the situation. they don t want to upset anyone. if you have any advise, please help. I feel that their attitudes are going to see their father dead before he should be. He is only 89 and still smokes (but in hiding from his wife)

swelling, hands & feet I have Fibromyalgia, & arthritis, but was hospitalized in April w/elevated LFT s (@ last testing it was @ 207 ) & a WBC of .13, just under a 1, which is back to normal & they figured out that what caused that was the Topamax I was on for Migraine preventative. They think the elevated LFT s is due to too much Acetaminophen in Vicoden ES & Fiorcet w/codeine & changed my pain med to something w/o Acetaminophen. I m scheduled to have additional blood drawn ordered by a Gastroenterologist. That said, my new symptoms are starting out with right hand swelling stiffness and pain then left hand swelling stiffness and pain and now feet as well. This morning my left hand was so swollen the skin was taught & shiny. Usually my right hand is the 1 that is swollen and especially around the knuckle of my pointer finger but is the closest to the hand part. All of that said, what could possibly be causing this?
