neurocardiogenic syncope

I was diagnosed 3 years ago w/ neurocardiogenic syncope from a positive tilt table. I have fainting periodically all my life (I am 30) without concern until 3 episodes brought on seizure like responses (stiffening, eyes rolling, loss of bladder control) however, the faint did precipitate the seizure like symptoms. I have been to several neurologists and now I am medicated for syncope with corgard and seizures with pheno. This has greating impaired my energy and motivation (I am an active private speech therapist). I am not convinced I was treated properly and I feel the doctors are taking a "cover your a_ _" approach. I did have 2-3 EEG with a positive diagnosis for "abnormal waves" but I have one a 16 with the same results and no diagnosis. I have not a fainting or seizure in 3 years and only had 2-3 ago. If you know anyone with similar symptoms, please let me know. I am looking for more information always. Thank you
