I am a 21 year old female. About a week ago, I started having fainting spells that can take up to half an hour for me to wake up from. During 1 of them I urinated on myself. I have been doing this multiple times every day since the onset. It seems to be getting worse as well. I went to the ER and they did a head CT scan which came back normal. Glucose and Thyroid were normal as well. Negative tox screen and pregnancy test. I had slightly low potassium. I have been having sporadic tachycardia. And slightly sporadic BP/heart rate changes. EKG was fine though. The doctors don't know what is causing this, but I can't even stand up to go from the couch to the bathroom without either fainting or coming close to fainting. I haven't been to work all week b/c of this. I also have fibromyalgia if that could have anything to do with this. I know something is definately wrong and I am scared. I need answers. Or at least ideas of what to ask my doctors to look into. Please, help me.
