dizziness and blackouts

I am currently 20 years old. I started getting dizzy in the shower when I was 12, it progressively got worse and when I was 14 I started to passing out.. but not actually full on blacking out.. I would have tunnel vision extreme dizziness my breaths would shorten and I was almost like paralized. I would just fall and there was nothing I could do to stop it. My cardiologist put me on a 30 heart monitor where the found that my heart rate would race up really fast (one time it was 168) then drop down to almost a complete stop in an instant. But that was all they ever said. Everything stopped for a while other than a few times a year. (It was happening multiple times daily) and now its coming back and I can barely shower or take a bath with almost passing out or falling. I have a 1 year old and can't be falling over. I'm still waiting on my insurance to get fixed so I can go back to my cardiologist but until then I need an answer.. there has to be a solution.
please help!
Jackie

Just out of interest, do you get the same response if you splash lots of cold water onto your face?

Also, when the symptoms occur, have you tried sitting down and coughing hard a few times?
