Hi. I am a 15 year old girl. Lately I have been getting very faint it seems almost every time I stand up. I had my period last week, and i normally don't have too bad of cramping but this time it was very different. I had chills and was sweating, i had a horrible cramping that i felt i could do nothing about. I took medicine for the cramping and the headache that i also had and that did not help. The cramping lasted almost 10 hours. It was so bad all I could do was lie down. Do u think this could be vaso-vagal? What should I do?

I have problems with my blood pressure will suddenly drop and then I get light-headed, sometimes loose balance when going to standing potision also when it gets too warm I fell faint. My heart feels like it is pounding very hard and like I have butterflies in my chest. I sometimes get a sharp pain in my left heal of my foot, I am always very constipated and nothing works but cascara and milk a magnesia. I went to a cardoligist and he put me on a ace inhibitor it seems to help a little I am only on it 3 days. But its like a panic attack but I have not gotten a explaination of the severe pain in my left foot it is like I am being shocked in the nerve of my foot. Anyone here have this problem?
