help me please!

hi. i am a 17 year old woman who is having a hard time. i am scared because for the past month i have been dealing with constant dizziness. when i get dizzy i feel as though my brain is fogged up and i cant walk straight. i am on birth control right now but it is low estrigen which is less harmful to me and just to be clear i am not pregnant. however. ive now also began to develpe nasea as well. ive never felt this feeling before (being dizzy) and the odd thing is that i am not doing any strenous activity when it occurs. i am worried and i need help. is there any suggestions of what i should do? is it serious?

Hi there. The various causes of syncope are central nervous system ischemia, vasovagal syncope may occur during urination, coughing etc, postural, cardiac syncope, neurological syncope, hypoglycemia, deglutition syncope associated with solids swallowing, cardiac includes cardiac arrhythmias, obstructive cardiac lesions, structural cardiopulmonary disease, sick sinus syndrome etc.  Various clinical tests like blood tests for hemoglobin, ECG, holter to record electrical activity of heart, tilt table test,  insertable cardiac monitor, etc would be required. Consult a cardiologist immediately for the needful assessment and management. Take care.
