Random Long Term Syncope

Hello,
I am a 26 year old male in the best shape of his life. I eat very healthy, with a good balance of protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. I workout 5-6 days a week but never "over do it", I always feel great afterwards or the following morning, never sore. A little over two years ago I started getting tunnel vision randomly and at the same time a sick feeling in my stomach. After about two min that feeling would go away and vision would correct, However, it seems about every 5-6 months, while working out, that happens but continually gets worse until I find myself waking up in the Hospital. It usually takes me 3-5 min, but I pass out, and stay out, for 30-45 min. I have seen a Cardiologist, Neurologist, Dietitian, and two general physicians and I have had each one tell me, "I have no idea what is going on with you". Every test comes out perfect and I am repeatedly told I am a very healthy individual....any help figuring this out would be so much appreciated!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Since you have consulted specialists and related conditions have been rule out, one other condition I can think of is POTS, Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. POTS is a disorder in which the autonomic nervous system fails to compensate for upright body posture, as a result of which the person has symptoms of lightheadedness, fatigue, diaphoresis, tremor, palpitations, exercise intolerance, near syncope and recurrent syncope on upright posture. A tilt table test and standing test can help diagnose this condition. Discuss this with your doctor when you happen to meet him next time.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
