They started exactly 1 year 4 months ago ... I first had 2 episodes and then exactly 1 year ago it became constant. I was tested for almost everything (blood, neuro routine tests, ears, parasites, thyroid, MRI, tilt table test, EKG, blood pressure, blood sugar, etc...) The "critical" tests I missed where ECG, Carotid doppler and a Holter test (none of the docs thought they where necessary).

They diagnosed me with the following:

Orthostatic Hypotension
Neurocardiogenic Syncope
Reactive Hypoglycemia

Obviously none of those where true except for the reactive hypoglycemia but that's about it. Reactive Hypoglycemia doesn't cause those symptoms unless you're entering a complete hypoglycemic shock and the funny thing is I once had my blood sugar tested while I felt I was fainting and everything came back normal (same happened with blood pressure).

It just went away with time ... The thing is even though I could have sworn I was going to faint that same minute, I never did. It didn't matter if I layed down, raised my legs or anything ... it was just a constant feeling through out the day and only time I felt alive and well was when I was sleeping. The last thing the Neurologist told me was I might have to live that for the rest of my life and fortunately I just feel slightly dizzy with blurred vision these days.

BTW, I was pale all day long.

I then went to a psychiatrist who never gave me a diagnosis but started giving me a bunch of medications. He prescribed me with klonopin, Lexotan, Zoloft, Xanax, Prozac, Wellbutrin and who knows what else and since I didn't feel better I stoped taking them before I became extremely depenant on them (I'm currently tappering off the last one which is Lexotan).

I hope you get over it soon because I know exactly what you feel like and I'm sure its worst than death itself :(
