From: Worried Wife
My husband just recently had a tilt table test. Where within a minute in a half he passed out and completly flatlined. This then induced a seizure, because he was unable to lay down. This was his third fainting spell in three weeks. He is 30 yrs old and in fairly good shape. The doctor put him on midodrine three times daily at 10mg. The doctor said at this point this was the most aggressive route that we could take. We go back for another tilt table test in a week, and we were told that if he fails this test again that we will need to start talking about a pacemaker. Has anyone else ever experienced there heart completly stopping?
