Frequent fainting. Affecting normal life. Blood tests normal. No apetite. Reason?

I have been fainting for the last 2 weeks, first it was just after a workout then it was doing anything from sitting to walking across my kitchen, i have been to the drs 3 times last week and will be going back tomorrow. they seem to dismiss it and it is very frusterating. they have told me not to go to work, not to drive and not to workout. i need to get back into a routine and need answers. I have had no apetite but all of the bloodwork showed up normal and not conclusive of any viruses . please help.

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

The causes of repeated fainting could be due to low blood hemoglobin, heart rhythm problem, postural hypotension and rarely could be due to seizures. You need specialized care and investigations. You can consult a local cardiologist and/or a neurologist who will interview you to obtain a detailed of the situations of the spells that you have and this will guide us regarding the further investigations. You would require ECG to check your heart rhythm, CT scan of the brain, holter monitoring, tilt table test etc. Once the cause is established, we will be able to offer you the best possible treatment

Hope this clarifies

Best wishes
