IF YOU HAVE ALREADY VISITED DOCTORS ,AND IN THERE OPINION YOU ARE FINE,SO BE RELAXED.
CHECK IF YOU HAVE DEHYDRATION,OR STRESS.CHECK IF YOU ARE GETTING NORMAL SLEEP,UNEXPLAINED FAINTING SPELLS NEED TO BE EVALUATED BY A PSYCHIATRIST,DEPRESSION OFTEN MASKED IS ONE MAJOR CAUSE OF IT,
IF YOU ARE USING ANY DRUGS WITH YOUR OWN ,KINDLY STOP IT,RE-HYDRATE YOUR SELF WITH PLENTY OF FLUIDS AND REST YOUR SELF IN VENTILATED PLACES.

I am a thirty year old male. I have been very healthy my whole life until 2 years ago. I started having dizzy fainting spells that would get better if I ate sweets. I was checked for diabetes and the test were negative. I am now having more spells and having headaches and blurred vision . All my blood work has been negative and C.A.T scan was negative. What could this be? I have been to ER and they have found nothing.. Please help me..

Hello, I have very bad neurocardiogenic syncope with orthostatic hypotension. I noticed that my blood pressure gets extremely low in the middle of the night, sometimes my husband has to do the sternum rub to awake me in the morning. Is it normal for me to have such a high pulse at 104 when I wake up in the morning?

I'm losing weight (30lbs so far) and I have 40 to go to reach goal of 135. Was on metoprolol 25 mg 1x a day, but B/P dropped and over time and had 2 weak, almost fainting spells which landed me in the ER 2nd episode. ER doctor, after all tests came back fine, diagnosed vertigo and told me to get off the B/P med. and talk to my doctor. I did that and my Dr. said it wasn't the pills, (off the pills 4 days now and my B/P was 114/64 today and was just a bit higher in his office. I don't understand why he doesn't want me off, however, I told him I was not comfortable restarting them again. If a person has a healthy blood pressure but is put on the med that I was on, can that cause weakness and feeling lightheaded and faint? In your opinion, should I be on high B/P med? thank you
