On a few occasions my wife complains of rapid heartbeats, coldness, thirstiness and loss of consciousness for a short period of time

EKG and other test shows no issues. she is committed to diet and exercise.

Diabetic? (Thirsty, loss of consciousness) Too much caffeine can cause one's heart to "flutter" from time to time. Hypoglycemic due to improper diet precautions. Have a full lab workup to be sure.

Get a 2nd, or even a 3rd opinion. Unless her diets & exercises are extreme, this is not normal.

Hi, Jay. Has her thyroid been tested with the TSH test and has she been tested for diabetes?

her thyroids are fine and she doesn't have diabetes.... I think she needs to stay away from salt and caffeine

Jay, if you'll go on Webmd.com, they have a section where you can go in and type in symptoms. It will give you a list of several things that are possibilities. It could be of some help.

This certainly doesn't sound good. I would go to a doctor and ask about this before it gets worse.

"No issues" is not good enough!!! Phone a local Homeopath and get your wife well again. All of the guesses suggested here are good, but they are just uninformed guesses. A Homeopath will know what to do to get your wife happy and healthy again....

what is a homeopath?
Report as
Homeopathy is a primary source of health care that has been around as long as America has been in existence. Before the drugs and chemcials came along,everyone relied on this simple, safe, effecive form of health care. When you want complex health problems cared for in detail, find yourself a Homeopath. The don't use poisonous drugs or surgery, but they do get amazing results. It is best to find a local practitioner and have them explain how they can help your wife....

Your wife's symptoms really sound like diabetes, hypoglycemia or some type of blood sugar problem. See http://diabetes.webmd.com/understanding-diabetes-symptoms. Hypothyroidism can also cause these symptoms, along with many other illnesses. Take her to the doctor for testing, until they find it. Sometimes it can can take some time to find the cause, but her passing out is definitely not good. Keep insisting she get tested, so she can get the treatment she needs to stop passing out. Good luck

she is hypoglycemic....

Then you need to get her to the doctor right away. She is most likely experiencing low blood sugar and needs advice on diet, sugar intake and medications. Hypoglycaemia can be a life threatening illness and can change day to day as far as severity. Things like illness or high stress can trigger a blood sugar response. It can also progress into diabetes and this would need immediate treatment as well. Take care
