Weak, Dizzy, Fainting- Why?!

I can't count how many times I actually fainted today.

Hi I see that this was posted a year ago, and I do not see any comments answering your qs (I might be missing them, I am new to this site). I have been experiencing the same thing....at LEAST once a day I am almost fainting, near syncope, everything turns black and I have to quickly get to the floor or a chair before I faint. I'm eating great, everything SHOULD be fine, but I'm not and I am SO fatigued and short of breath as well!!

I was wondering if you found out why this was happening to you? I'm scared at this point...went to the ER last week because I fainted in a store and lab work came back normal and they looked at me like I was ridiculous have come in there.

I'm scared. I was thinking maybe the endometriosis is effecting the vagus nerve???

I hope you are feeling better. <3
