Cardiologist 's  Response

I would like to tell you that there are two causes for near fainting symptoms:

1. Heart Rhythm Disorder
2. Neurological disorder

Predominantly, your symptoms are of underlying neurological disorder, but the cardiac evaluation will also be required.

Kindly get a CT scan brain, ECG. Echocardiography and Holter (ambulatory ECG) done and consult a cardiologist and neurologist personally for a physical evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
