I have been recently diagnosed with vaso-vagal syncope after an abnormal tilt table test. I am 29 year old and an RN working in the the operating room. All 4 of my episodes occured while i was standing. I would faint once a week. This has been going on for a month. 2 happened in the OR while i was scrubbed. I was lucky to get immediate medical attention since in work in a hospital. After both these episodes, my blood pressure was in the 170/110's and my heart rate was in the 180's. I had all the diagnostic testing done -- blood work, EKG, ECHO and holter monitor. All were normal results. My doctor sent me for a tilt table test which proved to be the worst test i have ever been through, but it helped get me diagnosed. My cardiologist prescribed Zoloft 50mg per day and so far I have not had any fainting episodes in over a week. Do you know how effective Zoloft is in treating vasovagal syncope?
What other foods do this to you?
