Re: can you stop breathing after you lose conciousness from a v. ...



My daughter is 18. A few weeks ago she passed out. She had previous episodes of feeling faint and tired. She also suffered with racing heart. She had the tilt table test and was diagnosed with Vaso Depressor Syncope. She was given nadolol but her symtoms began to include chest pain. She was taken off that and was given nothing. When will someone help her. I am becoming frightened for her life.
