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
