What causes recurrent fainting and nausea?

I have had several fainting episodes. Afterward very tired and nauseous. Meg stress test were normal except for bundle on left side of my heart last time I fainted I had chest pain and blacked out immediately. Wore monitor for 21days and nothing showed up. Now I am scheduled to get a linq monitor implanted. Do you think this is necessary? Why would this show anything if all other tests are normal?

Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, no need for another monitor as your Holter report is normal.
In my opinion, we should evaluate brain related pathology for your recurrent fainting episodes.
So consult neurologist and get done clinical examination and MRI brain to find out the cause for fainting episodes.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
