Sandy, did you actually pass out? I am seeing a cardioligist next week about my episode. A recommendation from my GP, but now I'm wondering whether I should see a Gastrointestinal physician. I would just like to get to the bottom of all this soon. So many tests and is so time consuming and very frustrating.
