It sounds like vagal syncope. Occassionally syncope can be confused with petit mal seizure since vagal syncope is sudden, with profuse sweating (the adrenergic response). Since I am not a physician, I base on scientific reading in the field. Thus, what you describe abot the show where the doctor injects isopreterenol, a beta adrenergic agent, makes some sense to me.
