The doctors can't seem to find what is wrong.
I have had a Tilt Test which showed as negative (because I didn't pass out though I did feel 2 symptoms), a 24 hour ECG monitor and frequent trips to the hospital and doctor, but they can't seem to find out exactly what it is.
I'm currently not on any medication because of them not knowing what they are treating.
I feel as though I pass out quite frequently, it usually happens about 2 to 3 times a week on average, which I feel is a ***l of a lot. I had to quite college twice because of it, and I now can't work because no-one will employ me knowing there is the posibility I can pass out.
I feel as though my heart rate rises when I'm going to pass out, I get the palpitations, light headedness, my ears feel like i'm underwater, my lips go tingly and my legs go shaky. I have done some research but when I mention possible diagnosis to my doctor, he just ignores it ><
Does anybody else get anything like this, or have anything to advise?
