So I was doing more research today and found this as relates to syncope:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/21518146/

“Syncope is often preceded by a symptom complex characterized by lightheadedness, generalized muscle weakness, giddiness, visual blurring, tinnitus, and gastrointestinal symptoms. These subjective symptoms are very important in guiding the diagnosis. In our experience, the impression of coming out of a dream after the syncopal episode is a subjective symptom commonly reported by patients, if questioned.”

So I think syncope, which was my original diagnosis from the cardiologist, is correct. So when I thought I had cataplexy I needed to learn my triggers. With syncope it’s no different, I need to learn my triggers!
