I had a "spell" last week and saw my Dr on Monday. I realized, that this incident was just like one I had a month ago folowing laproscopic surgery - at the time they thought the fainting was due to a viral infection I got after surgery. So, since 8/16 surgery, I have had two episodes. I have an irregualr heart beat (born with it) and am wearing a heart monitor for 30 days just to make sure it is not related.
