About two months ago I began fainting and losing consciousness. It started happening about once or twice a week. Then daily. These past days it has happened multiple times. One of my EKGs came back abnormal and I was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia, however no medication or treatment has been working and it is getting much worse. I have no symptoms or warnings before I lose consciousness, I just feel dizzy and a few seconds later hit the ground. I am getting more and more fearful everyday due to the fact that I live in a city and have lost concsiousness alone/have hit my head quite a few times. All bloodwork, x'rays of chest, and MRI's and CT's of head have come back normal.
I am starting to think that doctors do not believe me, or are starting to normalize this. I don't want to sound scared so I don't make a big deal, but I am becoming more and more scared. Losing consciousness four times in one day shouldn't be normalized.
I also am beginning to feel numbness and tingling in my legs and arms sometimes, and stiffness in my neck. I am afraid this might just be stress induced?
Has anyone had any similar issues and could help? I am a scared uni student.
