fainting or epilepsy/

Hi doc, I know its difficult to make a cyber diagnosis but please help. A lady friend was on her way home when suddenly she got severe stomach cramps, started sweating profusely, had a funny feeling in her head(?) and then fainted. She had 3 drinks before this happened. She has had similar incidents in the past and was advised that she could be suffering from epilepsy brought on by a head injury she got a long time ago. She is currently experiencing severe stress(job and emotional) and is depressed. And no, she doesn't want to go to the doctor

Ww, it might be epilepsy, but it might also just be low blood sugar and/or low blood pressure. The best would be for her to see a doctor as it sounds like it might be dangerous. If she doesn’t want to go, you should tell her that she is endangering her own and other peoples lives. Good luck.
