Hi, Im 23 years old and about 1 1/2 years ago i was diagnosed with this. It took a very long time to get this diagnosis. I changed doctors two or three times cause they all just seemed to blow it off as nothing. Not a big deal. But it was to me. How embarrising is it when you faint on a bus and not know why it happened. I have been on a beta blocker since my doctor found out what it was (by a tilt table test). Now 1 1/2 years later my symptoms have come back. I was wondering if anyone has been through this and was has been done when symptoms come back. Thanks.
