Nephrologist 's  Response
Hi there ,

polycystic kidney disease is a systemic disease. it involves kidneys but can also affect liver , heart valves and conduction system, brain aneurysms and lungs. The symptoms you describe could suggest low blood pressure or cardiac arythmias, Kindly see the pulse rate and BP during such episodes. How frequent are such episodes? This is a significant problem and needs urgent medical/ nephrology review

hope this helps
