Re: Simple test that anyone can do.



I would fill my home made questionaire after each fainting; what I did, what I ate, etc. By the time I got to this Dr I had 6-7incidents recorded and Each one had some form of activity and most included a drink of Rhum. The Dr suggested that after activity relax with a glass of water, gingerale or so and let your body re-adjust.... then have your drink. With that advice and knowing what I had my finint spells ended shortly after.
