I used to have these episodes frequently, but in the last few years it has only happened a few times.
When I was younger I was told that I was hypoglycemic. The last time I fainted at work, the paramedics came, and tested my blood sugar and said it was normal. I went to the ER just to make sure I was ok, and they didnt know what was wrong with me.
What could be causing this?

In some cases, there is no detectable explanation for the occasional fainting episode, but since you have a history of this, if you haven't, it would be a good idea to see your doctor for a full physical workup and perhaps a cardiology referral.
