If it occurs frequently and all the investigation is normal, then there is the possibility of conversion disorder. Does the recently gone into emotional bad event, tragedy or break down? Does he respond to strong stimuli like a heavy pinch on the middle of the chest or pinna? Or strong inhalation stimulus like a spirit? Does he a much-pampered child of the family? If it is so consulting psychiatrist. He needs behavioral therapy and counseling to cope up with emotional stress.

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