I just returned this week for CC for a second opnion my condition. They performed another TIlt table test, which I began to pass out after about 22 minutes. The first time I had it done was summer of '06. Then, they had to administer the adrenline medicine to get me to pass out. After that, they did a blood volume test and a hemodynamics test. Has anyone had these two tests done on behalf of Vasovagal syncope? The results should be in by next week. Also, since all the testing, I have felt terrible. I think that once the vagal nerve was interrupted, then my vagal tone is very high right now. Does anyone agree with this. I have also been experinceing a pinching and burning senstation in and near my left pectoralis muscle. Has anyone experienced this? I met with Dr. Fouad at CC. She is in charge of the Syncope clinic there. Just wanted to here some of your alls thoughts.John J.
