Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia fainting spells?

Hello My son (4 years) was born with tetralogy of fallot with pulmonary atresia. He also has mild cerebral palsy. Recently he has been fainting when he is crying really hard or laughing hard and once it occured when my husband was just playing around with him and turned him upside down. I took him to the hospital but the doctors are not really sure what is going on. He got an eeg (electrical activity of the brain) and a 48 hr holter monitor that showed nothing. 

Has anyone else experienced this and if so how was it resolved?

    I am so sorry that your son and your family are having to manage this. Did his doctor's have any treatment ideas or next steps? Thanks Katie
