Hi Rick, Your wife does sound like she has some type of dysautonomia(a fancy name for these disorders).
Sounds like she may need a neurological and cardio. work up, with various tests to rule out other things first. Did your doctor recommend a Tilt Table Test? This is a good diagnostic tool for her type of episodes.Most people with this type of disorder show no cardiac. signs on tests. There is a short period of time during an episode when some people lose both their BP and HR slows down. An Event Monitor is also a good way to catch whats happening during an episode.
Yes taking salt tablets and drinking plenty of water for some, helps keep the blood pressure up.
If she does have a dysautonomic condition, an EP doctor is one of the doctors who will help with a diagnosis.
Sure hope this helps you some.
Keep us posted on how your wife is doing.
