My wife, 30 years, faints frequently. To give a bit of a history, we have had our first child 1.5 years back. Previously, (2 years ago), there was no such issue. But since the birth of my son, she has suffered from several ailments. She compalins of severe back pain and faints frequently (now alomost once in every 8-9 days).

We have been to almost all kinds of doctors (physio-therapists, neurophysicians, general physician, orthopedic) with no real diagnosis for either problem. For fainting, the neurophsycian has said that it is because of stress. And I do feel that when she is stressed, she faints. She just falls down, though she has never hurt herself so far thankfully.

I am not sure if this is because of a psychological or physiological reason. Just visiting more doctors and taking more medications has not helped so far. Any one with any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
