      @ZombE that's a good choice of action. I really hope they help you out and can find the root of the problem! Visiting a neurologist takes patience because if they admit you, there are many random test they can do that then take time for results to get back. In the meantime, they are going to tell you to drink water. And if they don't, they should because all doctors do, and it's annoying. So keep a track record of symptoms, sleep, exercise, and water. Then you will have something to show your doctor what you daily life looks like- and prove that you do in fact drink water.

      Most of these symptoms pertain to the nervous system. See a neurologist!

        @MammaCookie I am going to a neurologist next week hopefully we can figure this out cause it's now causing my alopecia to act up from the stress.

      Mine is related to my blood pressure going low at night.

      unfortunately the ER can really only rule out acute causes like a stroke or tumor. see a cardiologist and a neurologist, they can investigate more chronic or long-term causes of your fainting spells

      I have the same thing. I have passed out about 3 times one being while sitting down. My doctors told me it was just a drop in my blood pressure and diagnosed me with Vasovagal

      You don't have much time before you faint. Always get another opinion.

      I went to 4 doctors to find out what was going on.

      Hello! Do you have symptoms before you faint? I feel lightheaded, heart palpitations, headache, blood pressure drops, nausea, and faint.

        @Melsy I start to feel weak and than everything goes black and I don't remember what I do before I faint
