I too, suffer from this problem. Mine is very severe and my heart stops during som episodes. I've had to be brought back to life with Resucitation on two occassions. First I feel hot, then nauseated, my blood pressure and heart rate drop rapidly, then I am out. I have survived a couple of episodes with out medical care. If I feel it coming soon enough I can lie on my back, prop my feet up. get a cold rag amd fight it off. Once I had an episode in the men's bathroom and had to lie down on the dirty floor and put my feet upon the commode. I survived but it was humiliating when a couple guys walked in. I survived another eposide while I was alone.
It came when I was home alone one summer. I felt an attack oming on, removed my shirt, and lay downon the cold tile flooring in front of the A/C return air unit. The cold passing over my body stopped it after about 20 minutes. Any questons pls ask.
