NeuroCardiogenic Syncope

From: David


40 year old Man; I was just diagnosed with NeuroCardiogenic Syncope today. I had the Tilt Table Test done last week and only made it 13 minutes (not even given any meds before my heart rate dropped to 30 and my BP was 60 / 40. Just about passed out before they tilted my back down. I am hunting for more info. My Dr has put me on 2 different meds one to raise BP the other to Lower it. Says to drink plenty of fluids and use a lot of Salt. Can anyone out there point me in a direction to get more education about this condition??
