Re: heart stopping



I was in the hospital being checked for chest pains (which turned out to be nothing). I was hooked up to a heart monitor. When they started an IV that was it for me. I passed out and my heart stopped for 30 seconds. I woke up to a room full of doctors. They kept me at the hospital and did a heart catheder and my heart looked fine.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
