  • Any new treatments for syncope in the last 10 years?

    I had a fairly sever syncopal episode ten years ago. I had a complete cardiac work up. I went through a number of tilt tests. I was put on at least six different meds and given tilt tests to see if the meds were helping. None of the meds helped, but many of them had harsh side effects. With Theophylline for example, my heart rate was running about 30 beats per minute faster than normal, I felt like I was burning up most of the time and I could only sleep about 2 hours a night. I lost ten pounds in....

Without access to her original medical records and without the ability to get an answer from her mother, is it possible to know if she ever did have a hole in her heart that resolved itself?

    Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    Hello, 25 y.o. male went into sudden cardiac arrest in October 2017. The hospital said it appeared I had myocarditis at some point (they're unsure of when), and it left scar tissue on my heart. This caused the SCA. It was so rare and unlikely that it shouldn't happen again. They put an ICD in me in case though. I was on lisinopril and metroprolol and was able to go back to normal life feeling fine. Four months later, my defibrillator went off as my heart went into v-tach again. (I'm not....
