The first time I passed out I was 30. I was at work and had very little notice. I fell right out of my chair. I was taken to the hospital and my heart rate was pretty low so the doctors ordered some follow up test. I had to wear a heart monitor for a while but had no episodes while wearing although my heart rate did drop really low a couple of times during the night. I passed out once while playing the piano. I think I passed out a total of 10 or 12 times during that spell. I would feel confused and unable to focus right before passing out. It suddenly stopped one day and now 10 years later, I passed out again. I was at work. Within a week, I passed out again. The second time I was sitting in my chair. I am scheduled for the tilt table test next week. I live day to day wondering if it's going to happen again and praying that it doesn't. From what I have read on this site though, mine isn't as bad as it could be. Thanks for all the posts b/c it is encouraging to know you aren't the only one out there with this.
