Thank you Jamie, for the information.

From your symptoms it seems that you had syncopal attack .

Syncope is a temporary loss of consciousness due to transient loss of blood supply to the brain.

Symptoms are sensation of warmth, nausea, lightheadedness, sweating, blurring of vision, inability to stand, low pulse & blood pressure etc.

One of the common cause of syncope is vasovagal attack.

However there can be other causes like heart diseases , coughing spells, neurologic or lung problems , dehydration, emotional stress, exposure to heat etc.

So you need a physical examination along with tests if the doctor feels.

The pain on the side, sore throat, ear pain, sweating can be due to an infection.

Often it is viral infection, but bacterial can be there.

Fever may not be present.

I would suggest to take an examination in an urgent care.

Please take plenty of fluid to keep good hydration.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If there’s anything else I can do, let me know.
