I found your article very interesting. My 27 year old daughter has recently experienced two fainting spells at work within the last month. The first time she fainted without warning and they called the rescue squad. The second time she was in a big meeting on the loading dock and said she felt like she wasn't getting enough air and stepped back to lean on something next thing she knew she was on the floor. Her blood pressure is low 96/64--otherwise she is in good health. Her primary care physician became concerned after the second spell and immediately referred her to a cardiologist. He performed the tilt table test it did not have definitive results but he feels the above diagnosis is probably correct and has given her a monitor to carry for the next month should she have another episode. He also questioned if she ever had fainting episodes when she was younger. The fact is she would pass out or feel faint during times of pain--like removal of warts etc. I was very relieved to see that your patients' symptoms seem to be in remission after a year and a half. I would be very interested in finding out any additional information on this subject.
My husband has had this also, can It be treated any how, or what do the Doctors need to check for to diagnose it? Thanks
