I was diagnosed about 2 years ago and it lasted for about six months. I could never figure out a trigger that was causing it. They had me on multiple medications which they had me stop taking due to them not working. I had a positive tilt table test where my heart rate and blood pressure would plummet and I would pass out. I have hit my head numerous times and had numerous concussions. They had me in the hospital for two days performing multiple test with a neurologist and cardiologist and found nothing. The only thing that made it stop was bed rest, hydration and a high salt diet for about a month. It just recently came back about two weeks ago and I've passed out about 10 times in that 2 weeks. I can't afford to keep missing work and be on bed rest. Has anyone else had something similar and found some alternative method that works? Also I forgot to mention they put an implantable loop recorder in my chest that just shows my heart rate dropping when I pass out. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Left me know if you have any questions or need further information.
