I don't know why your condition has suddenly gets worse. That can happen with the condition, it can go in peaks and troughs. Are you under any stress at the moment or can you trace when things got worse back to a stressful incident? That can make the condition worse.

If I didn't carry a small portable stool around with me all the time I would pass out many times a day. However, with the stool this does not happen as I can sit down and rest for short periods. Might this help you? It doesn't prevent all attacks by any stretch but it does help with some, especially since I've devloped bad tachycardia when walking.

The other suggestion I have is to record exactly when and where you have symptoms and what you were doing when they happened - that really helps me out when things get worse.
