Dizzy, sweats, weak, diarrhea, passed out woke up on floor. 2 episode in 2 mts. Causes?

Dizzy, sweats, weak, diarrhea, passed out woke up on floor. 2 episode in 2 mts. Causes?

Complicated: This is difficult to answer in this small space. There are so many possibilities that come to mind from infectious, hormonal, autoimmune, neurologic and/or primary cardiac that could lead to this constellation of symptoms. You need to make sure your evaluation is being spearheaded/coordinated by your primary care physician, as this sounds like it needs a comprehensive evaluation. Best of luck.

Many possibilities: You need to see a doctor, provide a full history and undergo a physical exam and perhaps some labs and imaging studies to answer this intelligently.

Many causes: Your symptoms can have many causes. At the ER they most likely ruled out the dangerous/serious causes, and told you to follow up with your doctor for further evaluation. They will have also told you to return to the ER if you develop worsening symptoms. Could be a virus, food poisoning, or any number of other causes.

Can fruit juice cause diarrhea in adults? When I eat certain fruits or drink any fruit juice I get diarrhea, dizziness and extreme tiredness.

Diarrhea and juice: The basic fruit used in many fruit drinks is actually apple. Other juices are then added in for flavour. Some people do not tolerate apple juice well due to a poorly digested sugar in it called maltose. I'm actually not a fan of fruit juices due to the highly concentrated sugars in many of them. Whole fruits are better.

Can constipation cause dizziness/lightheadedness. I usually am dizzy when unable to have bm. It is uaually followed by diarrhea. Can constipation press on a vagus nerve?

Can constipation cause dizziness/lightheadedness. I usually am dizzy when unable to have bm. It is uaually followed by diarrhea. Can constipation press on a vagus nerve?

Normally not: Anything is possible but your symptoms suggest that you at least need a GI workup. The vagus nerve is too far away to be directly affected. Are you anemic? If you are regualarly constipated are you sure that it is diarreah and not chyme (liquid processed food)pushing past old stool? Sometimes hypothyroidism can cause chronic constipation. Perhaps you should check with your primary care.

What causes chronic diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia, fainting, Full bowel movement in sleep, headaches, eye pain?

What causes chronic diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia, fainting, Full bowel movement in sleep, headaches, eye pain?

Viral syndrome: Other than the "full bowel movement in sleep" what you are describing is consistent with viral syndrome which requires rest and hydration and should not last more than 5 days. Avoid dehydration as you are losing water and it will make symptoms worse. Make sure you eat and keep activity and environmental exposure to a minimum until you recover. Let your doctor know what is going on.
