Re: First time V-V (Thought it was a heart attack)



Dunno - but keep us posted! I went for years between episodes and carry on as normally as possible. I am presently wearing a heart monitor for 24 hours (also did heart monitor overnight in the hospital right afer an epsisode out of town recently and there wasn't anything significiant they could tell me) and expect to have an EEG next week (had an EKG yesterday). My local doctor is following up because I am have symptons every night and am close to passing out each time. I will be travelling again soon and really have to stop this. It is extremely inconvenient and doesn't make for a good night's sleep.
