thanks for responding. symptoms include a warm rush, clammy hands, lightheaded/dissy feeling (only blacked out once, but always feel like I will fall over), tachycardia, feeling of BM right before, during or after one of these episodes. After symptoms start to subside - I feel shaky, and chilled(not goosebumps, but bone shaking chills) Had tilt table test - low b/p normally - even lower when I have symptoms. Don;t know when episodes will come - usually at rest either standing or sitting - have not had one lying down. No doc. has told me what they can do for me except increase fluid. Oklay, done that - still symptomatic. Docs. say just wait-I think they think it's just something you have to live with. I would like to live with it with some type of quality.
