GO TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST IMMEDIATELY. He/She can do a table tilt test which will either prove or disprove the condition.

If positive there are two options. 1 - medication, 2 - pacemaker implant (I have one). As I was due to leave the UK permanently, my Dr suggested the pacemaker as medication is not always reliable. Shirley
