Must evaluate: Repeated episodes of loss of consciousness must be evaluated. You may have a cardiac issue or neurologic disorder. Lab testing should include a CBC, CMP and UA. Other causes include hypothyroidism, diabetes, dehydration. Drink fluids, avoid excess sugar, monitor BP and pulse. Please see your PCP.
