I pass out frequently and throw up just about every time I eat or drink. I have had numerous tests including Tilt Table, Holter Monitor, ECG, EKG, Endoscopy, Psychiatric Evaluation, Tests for Autoimmune disorders, Diabetes, etc. I have also been seen at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. The only thing they have found is that I have bradygastria (stomach muscles that don't contract normally) and a hiatial hernia. I have lost my job due to the passing out. I have suffered from concussions as well as scrapes and bruises. I have all of my medical reports and test results. I need help! I am 40yoa white female. I have also lost over a hundred pounds, put it back on and am losing it again. Thank you for your help.
I used to work with a girl who had something similar. That was several years ago so I can't remember what it was called, sorry, but it was her brain tricking her body into believing she had a brain tumor. She didn't have one but the illness mimicked the symptoms. She didn't have the weight loss though.
I think psychosomatics have become increased since medicine has become so much better. In the abscence of problems, the mind constructs them. Same thing with anxiety; in the absence of life threatening situations the mind makes stuff like tests or job interviews, etc seem like life or death.
Hi again. I have not made any diet changes. I am on a medication called Motilium (not sold in the US). It makes my stomach muscles contract. I have a very low Vitamin D level (4)and they are treating that. For two years I had to get hydrated every week. I have been checked for siezures. I've had numerous CAT & MRI scans of my head and all is normal. I just recently lost my job due to passing out at work & obviously I can't drive. I had a Tilt Table test that was slightly irregular but the Dr. said it wouldn't be causing my trouble. I appreciate all your responses. Thank you.
