Hi dana/dee, what did they tell you about your symptoms on the tilt table test? Do a search and look up neurocardiogenic syncope and vasodpressor syncope. You will find a lot of information on your symptoms. The interesting thing is your episodes are at rest. Doesn't sound like it has anything to do with position changes. A good cardioligist, ordering the right tests, should be able to help determine what you need to do next. The really good test is wearing a 30 day event monitor. Its an easy test, and if you have an event you just push a botton and it captures your episode on an ECG.You could be tachy and/or brady. during these events. Heart Arrythmias can cause your symptoms. The problem with having this condition, is the danger of injury from falls, car accidents, etc. Most of us who faint on a semi- regular condition have dysautonomia. If you never heard of dysautonomia, do a search and you will be suprized how much info. is out there.

Keep posting. let me know if this helped or confused you.
