Hi Becca! Thank you for caring, it means a lot. I have mixed emotions about the tilt table test. I did not pass out, I came close twice. Both times my body went limp but I didn't totally black out. They only had one nurse in there and she was watching the moniter and not me. So I don't think she even noticed what I did. I told her right before that I was faint. I hated the medicine they gave. It made my heart race so fast that I thought it would leap out of my chest. IT HURT! I was praying that I would faint to jsut get the test over with. Have you had this test before? What was your experince? They said my blood pressure dropped but it was within the normal range. I don't get why I pass out almost everyday but not totally on the table. I even felt like I could get sick when they sat me up with the medicine in me. I would open to any advice or encouragment right now. I just want to get to the bottom of this and get on with life. Thanks again!
