Hello and hope you are doing well.

The dizzying spells could be related to Long QT syndrome (LQTS) as this can cause fast, chaotic heartbeats. These rapid heartbeats may trigger a sudden fainting spell/seizures. You may need to limit your physical activity, avoid medications known to cause prolonged Q-T intervals and take medications to prevent a chaotic heart rhythm. If your symptoms do not respond to medical management you may need surgery or an implantable device. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
