Re: Still being told Dr. have no idea what it is.

From: J


I have been told by doctors that I have this syndrome or syncope or whatever you call it, but I have never had a tilt test. Why should I put myself through that? It's possible that I might pass it. What would that prove? I still have triggers which cause fainting. I had an EEG test done less than a year ago with flashing strobe lights, etc. and I did not pass out but it did not make me feel very good and the technician stopped the test when I started becoming a little anxious. She said she had enough data, and actually did not need to pursue anything else along these lines. They also ruled out heart problems. It's something that I just deal with from time to time, and fortunately not as often as many others who participate in this forum.
