Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

In medical terms it is called as Syncope. It occur when brain doesn't gets enough blood flow and you lose consciousness.
Usually a slow heart rate causes a drop in blood pressure, this reduces the blood flow to the brain. It should not be ignored and have to be urgently evaluated by doctor in ER.

Possible causes are-

-Emotional distress,
-Heart disease (decreased blood flow to the heart or irregular heart rhythm),
-Low blood sugar,
-Seizures,
-Panic attacks,
-Blood pressure imbalance.

A clinical examination and tests have to be done for precise diagnosis.

You need to undergo these tests- EKG, Blood pressure monitoring, Blood sugar test, Cardiac examination, Exercise stress test.

It is also possible, that you may have a anxiety/ panic attack.
I advise that you should get immediate evaluation by your doctor at the earliest.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
