My Episode

I'm 31 years old. My episodes are as follows: I get really hot, lightheaded, dizzy and feel like I'm going to pass out. I have an 'off balance' feeling a lot of the time and have to walk next to a wall. I even feel like I'm floating sometimes. My legs get weak and heavy and I get extremely tired out of no where. It seems to be worse when in a large crowds. Comes out of no where. I notice my heartrate gets fast too. I have a 10 month old who doesn't sleep well, therefore I haven't slept well in 10 months. Could this have something to do with it? Is there any natural treatment for this? What can I do for myself? I'm afraid to be alone sometimes because of it.
