My mom keeps having random fainting spells. She is on no prescriptions except during winter for SAAD. She has had heart checked and no blockages, freakishly good heart veins. Had radiation for a breast cancer some years ago, possible heart muscle damage? Had shown symptoms of problem ie weakness and jaw pain while walking dog, now this frequent weakness, dizziness. Yesterday it happened after a BM, whole shopping too long, and this morning feeling generally bad with a "prickling sensation across gut under breasts" Dr's are pretty much ignoring her after heart checks look okay. She also has severe osteoporosis in spine and has had surgery to cement some vertebrae. Maybe nerve damage?
