my condition FYI

I have had the pain in my butt, heightened pressure building in my head to seem like a hissing noise, then cold sweating, light headedness, feeling of fainting, I usually lay on the floor & let the condition take its course, i usually pass out. when I come to I look very grey & 15 minutes later I'm ok. Sometimes it happens 4 x a year, sometimes 0 times this year 1 time. I always let people know this could happen & if it does just make sure I am ok, nausea also is there. I was told it was a mild form of epilepsy, or due to my blood pressure being low, & it is true, I treat it casually, like the medical community I have been in contact with. One day a work, i was talking to a retired nurse & she told me of the term. I looked it up & wow, it fit like a glove. My, the mystery was solved.
