Depends: Since this is happening as the weather is heating up this could be autonomic dysfunction related to electrolyte or glucose disturbance. Gather details regarding the duration of spells, timing (related to eating or outside?), number of spells (affects possibilities), and how water helps (how long before benefit?). Check pulse during spell. Give info to your doctor. Why did you tag pregnancy?
