scarilla, Hope I spelled your name correctly. If your son had 2nd degree heart block, its unlikely that his episodes are in his head.Has he been evaluated by a cardio doctor? Sounds like he might be a good candidate for a 30day Event Monitor.What type of symptoms does he display during these episodes? Look up Neurocardiogenic syncope and see if you think it fits his symptoms. Come back here for any further assistance Take care.
