Re: neurocardiogenic syncope



I was diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope yesterday. My dr. put me on florinef and mentioned that I may have to wear a heart monitor and maybe even possibly have a pace maker inserted if the meds do not help. I am 50 and have had passing out spells even as a child. Every time I see blood or give blood I pass out. Did your Dr. mention these treatments to you. I am sorry you have this also. How old are you? I know now that I am not alone with this. I have never heard of it before.
