Faint when standing up.

Patient : I have a problem,WHEN I INITIATE MY SELF FROM REST TO WORKING POSITION(WHEN I UPRIGHT FROM SITTING OR LAYING POSITION,OR WHEN LIFTING SOME WEIGHT,OR WHEN I DO SOME HARD WORK) THEN SEVERAL TIMES I GET SUDDEN TINGLING FOR 10-15 SECONDS ONLEY.AND AFTER THAT I RECOVER MY SELF AUTOMETICALLY .DURING THAT PERIOD(10-15SECOND) SOME TIMES I FALL DOWN,SOME TIMES NOT. MY NEOUROLOGYICAL ALL REPORT IS NORMAL. CT SCAN-NORMAL BLOOD CARTISOL LEVEL-NORMAL(7.98) HUTT TEST-NEGATIVE. ECG EEG-NORMAL
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting ATD. Since neurological evaluation showed all the tests are within the normal limit, possibilit ies could be Vasovagal episode, Autonomous dysfunction, other neuropathies. Check Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D levels also, as this can cause neurological dysfunction. Consult neurologist for further advice and treatment. Have a nice day.
