Flatulence and "near" fainting

From: P


for years I have had this problem off and on.. it is more bothersome mid to late menstrual cycle.. I will begin to feel thirsty, become weak clammy and break out in terrible sweats.. thinking is difficult.. this will come and go throughout the day til one of two things happen.. I will pass gas or faint(i suspect there may be a release of the flatulence while i am in la la land) as I was previously diagnosed with anxiety attacks(20+yrs ago) I can get no assistance in being evaluated further and keep getting told to see a counselor. There have been times that the smell of food or the anticipation(not unpleasant) of eating can bring on a "spell"
