Re: prolongued "near-fainting," or presyncope

From: Bic


I have just been given the preliminary diagnosis of Presyncope by my doctor. I really was in a bad way last night. Almost had someone take me to the emergency room. I had a hard time breathing and staying concious while laying down. Usually this occurs in the morning after I go to the bathroom. I will be going through blood testing and be on the tilt table next week.
