People of all ages can suffer fainting spells or falls. There are many things that can cause these, including heart problems, neurologic disorders, gait disorders, or problems with medications. In some cases, fainting and falling can be a sign of a dangerous medical condition. Because there are so many potential causes, people often end up seeing several doctors before the correct diagnosis is made.
