tilt table test - frustrated



I am 49 years old and have been having syncope since Nov 04. I had gastric bypass surgery done on Nov. 10, 2004 and have lost 75 lbs since then. Whem....maybe I have not been getting enough fluids but I drink as much as possible. Did not pass out with the tilt table test on tues of this week, but my heart rate did raise and blood pressure dropped to 88/52. They said my dr would probally suggest 30 day heart monitor. I am so frustrated. Please email me if you have any thoughts. Debbie
