I was having dinner in a restaurant feeling very well. It was served family style and my family and I all ate the same food.(no one else felt ill) No one but me felt a terrible bloating, I started to belch which was funny to them (not to me, because this never happens to me) I became concerned and nervous. I started to feel a severe nausa and asked my daughter to walk to the ladies room with me. I thought if I relieved myself, I would start to feel better. I remember saying to her, something terribel is happening to me. The next thing I knew was that I was on the floor, my daughter asking someone to call for an ambulance. I was told I was unconcious for only a few seconds. It felt longer, like I was dreaming. I was sweating and shaking as the emt took my blood pressure and vital signs, I was taken to the hospital and stayed 5 days. I was given every heart test known to mankind. EKG, Eco. tilt table, given a heart monitor to wear and a very frightening ESP study. I fibulated and thank goodness after 45 minutes I regulated. I also was given a CAT scan of my brain. I guess to rule out stroke.I passed all of these tests except for them finding I have extra heart beat. Some high blood pressure 140/80. My discharge papers read syncope, hypoholemin. The Asst, doctor upon discharge used the term with me that I had a vasal vagal experience. I have been known to have anxiety. Can you comment? Did they do right in giving me all these tests?
