The fainting feeling,dizziness and feeling sick happened to my 65 year old wife who is usually very fit. The fainting attack came on suddenly and the dizziness lasted several hours. She was not sick. It was quite a scare as she could hardly get up the stairs. She seems to have recovered now but we wonder whether she should be checked out somehow?

All the best

She should be seen soon
