I have passed out since I was 12. I was in a car accident and I passed out on the scene for the very first time. Also I passed out in the hospital and ever since. I've been to various different doctors and no one can seem to figure out what could be causing it. It was obviously an injury due to the car accident but it's been five years since and I have no answers.

  • There was an episode on Mystery Diagnosis where the same thing happened to a 16 yr old female. After YEARS they disdovered that she had injured her hypothalamus(?) in the accident (whiplash) and as a result her cortisol levels were way low. Another thing, you could rersearch postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or dysautonomia.Good LuckPamela
