I feel like I am going to pass out for no apparent reason, it comes out of no where and seems to be happening more frequently especially when taking my kids to the doctor or whenever I am nervous about something. It is starting to interfere with my everyday life I dont even want to go to the grocery store by myself. Have had my blood sugar tested and everything came back okay. Sometimes when my blood presure is checked it is low. Could this be borderline low blood sugar? I dont eat very well and probably ingest alot of caffeine could this be why I feel this way..I am in reasonably good health and not overweight I do smoke about a pack a day and have taken diet pills in the past that had enery enhancers in them. I really would like to find out if this is a health problem or anxiety related. Please Help
Low blood sugar is a possibility. Checking a fasting blood sugar can be done, and further testing (i.e. insulin levels) can be done if it is abnormally low.
I would also consider Holter monitor or event monitor to look for heart rhythm abnormalities, as well as an echocardiogram to evaluate for structural damage.
Neurologic disease can also lead to this finding, and a brain MRI and neck ultrasound can be done as an initial screen.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
