I had this happen a couple of times. I am pretty sure that for me it was tied to dehydration, and I am now pretty vigilant about staying hydrated. It was an absolutely awful experience-my vision was tunneling, the first time I thought I was dying (and the way it felt, I wanted to die) and I was just horribly nauseated and sick. I was at work, and we have a lot of on-staff nurses luckily. The scariest thing for me is that they could not locate my pulse or heart beat.
Because of my heart experience, the first time I ended up in the Emergency Room but at that time they just called it a "vasovagal response" , couldn't find anything wrong with me, and sent me home. The second time I was alone at home and couldn't get to a phone, but at least I knew what it was and didn't panic.
It is an AWFUL feeling and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I hope they can get to the bottom of his problem and get it fixed.
