My symptoms were very similar you need to see an electrophysiologist , you may have a wiring problem. They will order you a halter moniter, for at least 24 hours. i now have a pacemaker i just turned 39, I got it a year ago. My headaches are now gone as well as the other symptoms, I still get dizzy from time to time but no maore fainting. They will try to treat you medically first and order a salty diet with plenty of water. They played around for 7 years until I had an episode in a childrens hospital with many DR's then action was immediate and swift. good luck~pat
