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!
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.
