In brief: Mayneed further look

Talk to a cardiologist .
You may need a tilt table study, a carotid massage to see if it causes any undue slowing of heart beat, an implantable loop recorder to be able to record your heart beat while you are having the syncope to see if it is a problem and / or an ep study to see if you are at risk for arrhythmia or slow heart beat.

In brief: Yes

Follow with neurologist.
Sometimes time tells the reason. I believe u had been already investigated. Sometimes repeat testing can give the answer. Some cause like heart irregularity can not be caught lon one testing.

In brief: Causes of Syncope

If no arrhythmia (with holter monitor), no changes in blood pressure(orthostasis or low bp)no seizures, check your medicines, make sure labs are ok(no anemia) carotid/vertebral arteries ultrasound, MRI of brain (or ct), check inner ear.
This probably covers most common causes.

In brief: Likely yes

It depends on several factors such as your age, past medical history, medications your on, etc.
For, example 'autonomic instability' could do this, but occurs in specific settings.
