son keeps having near fainting episodes

my son is 21yrs, he keeps having these weird episodes every 6mths or so,  clammy sweat, pupils dilate, gray skin, blue lips, near fainting if standing, ears ringing, slurred speech,
I am so scared, don't know what is wrong, and he is frustrated, have been to Dr's and they can't figure it out, Im starting to get nervous it doesn't make any sense?

What does he do immediately before this happens?
As he seems to have an episode every 6 months or so, there may be a link to what he is doing.

Has he had a blood test taken to check for any abnormalities?
And a test on his heart and the possibility of having experienced a mild stroke?

That smells of a heart problem!  Has he had a full heart exam?
