Okay well I'm a 15 years old female. For the past two years or so I've been having random episodes of fainting but recently it has been getting worse. I also have unbearable migraines and occasionally my arms twitch uncontrollably.
For the fainting it happens randomly. Sometimes it happens when I stretch my arms and back and sometimes it just happens randomly like when I'm sitting down or even when I'm standing or laying.
When I begin to faint, everything slowly fades to black, my hearing fades and I fall. I am fully aware that I am fainting, my neurologist says that That means I am conscience during my episodes. Sometimes my vision doesn't even fade during the fall and I am able to see as I fall. Sometimes I have the ability to catch myself right before I hit the ground.
The fainting only lasts for a few seconds then I can get back up..But while I am waking up my whole body tingles and my head feels warm and fuzzy,I also feel disoriented and confused and sometimes dizzy. Sometimes the tingling feeling feels like it hurts as well like that numb pins and needles type tingle.
The migraines and the twitching also occur randomly and do not seem to happen during the fainting episodes. I also occasionally have chest discomfort that feel like someone is lightly stabbing me, I'm not sure if it counts as pain because it is not very strongly discomforting,t he stabbing feeling can most often last all day. And sometimes I have the feeling my heart is beating too fast and that I am not able to breathe
Well recently due to a pediatric neurologists advice, me and my mother stopped going to the chiropractor and I was admitted into the hospital for 2 and a half days earlier this week.
While at the hospital they did a EEG, EKG, a "echo" on my heart, a xray on my heart and they took blood to do thyroid tests. Also during the hospital stay I had no episodes and They recorded no seizure or heart problem activity. Though the only thing they did notice is that my blood pressure does change drastically between sitting, standing and laying down.
Due to the fact nothing happened while at the hospital a rude neurologist has put me on magnesium oxide and prenatal vitamins because she believes that I have some sort of vitamin deficiency that is causing my fainting, though I was not tested or anything to confirm this theory. She also has another theory that I am dehydrated and instead of my body telling me I'm thirsty; I pass out. She also seems to think I may be stressed and that is the reason for my fainting.
I personally believe none of these are true because one, If I had a vitamin deficiency wouldn't I pass out no matter where I am?; and two, I drink a lot of fluid every day, I cannot possibly be dehydrated. Stress seems to be a possible theory although the fainting happens even when I am not stressed or upset.
Does anyone have any idea what might actually be wrong with me?
