Expert:  Dr. SH replied 7 months ago.

Ok that's fine.

I will give you the possible causes that may not have been considered in her case that need to be considered and ruled out:

1. TIA (transient ischemic attack) which is a condition where an artery in the brain temporarily gets blocked that can lead to fainting episodes.

2. Low levels of cortisol hormone in the body --- which can easily be tested for by doing a blood test for this particular hormone.

3. Heart arrhythmias --- she may require a holter monitor or an event monitor to have her heart rate and rhythm monitored as a problem with the heart rate and rhythm can also lead to such a problem.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
