Dizzy spells when tired, stressed. Feel very faint. Remedy for above symptoms?

I have been having dizzy spells, particularly when I am tired and stressed.Probably 6to8 weeks apart. They last for approx 24 hours. I can have them every hour or so over this time period. They leave me drained and very tired. i feel like a black cloud is descending on me. I have had neurological tests which have shown nothing. I don not black out but feel very faint. These episodes are very distressing and I have to stop doing what I am doing at the time

Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HCM

Frequent episodic dizzy spells, tiredness, stress, feeling of blackouts etc symptoms may occur due to either an episode of Anxiety or it may be due to Mild Depressive Episode. As these are very distressing I would advise you to visit a Psychiatrist for proper opinion and evaluation. Various medicines of SSRI or SNRI group like Paroxetine, Sertaline, Fluoxetine, Duloxetine, Venlafexine etc are vey useful. They correct the neurochemical abnormality in anxiety and depression.
