35 female, newly diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope, which resulted in my BP dropping to 64/36 & pulse at 2 requiring me to be hospitalized numerous times since March 15' since then I have found out that my sodium level is pretty much bottomed out which is weird cause I have been craving salt like crazy and consume a ton of it. Also I have found out that my blood sugar levels are extremely low despite the fact that just in drinking ice tea I consume 2 cups of sugar a day just in that but I'm thirsty ALL the time. My iron level is @ 2 & my cbc is really bad but all my other vitamin levels are normal. I go in for a iron infusion on Monday. Also I sleep maybe 3 hrs a night if that, can't fall asleep or stay asleep. Is there something the doctors are missing or should be testing or looking more into cause it seems like ever since March I've been falling apart. The only thing they are treating is my low iron, as far as the sugar level goes they just said eat 6 small meals per day.
