looking for a diagnosis/treatment; problems while driving

From: Carrie in Rockville, MD


I've been having problems with feeling like I'm going to faint, as well as migraines, since June '04. I've been to the GP, ENT, neurologist and the cardiologist. Finally, I had my tilt table test done today and I didn't pass out. I really wanted to. My doctors don't seem to have any suggestions for me for next steps and I'm not taking anything to feel better.

These episodes are most pronounced when I'm driving and oddly enough when I'm on a major highway rather than a 15 mph little road. Does anyone else have thoughts?
