Question Neurocardiogenic Syncope symptoms going away and then all of a sudden coming back?

I am so happy that I found this message board! I was diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope when I was 20 years old. I was put on a drug called Norpace and it really seemed to help my symptoms. I was taken off the medication when my husband and I decided to start trying to have children (when I was 25). The doctor warned me that the problem would probably get worse during pregnancy. He said morning sickness would really compound the problem. I really didn't see any of that at all. I had very easy pregnancies and not a lot of morning sickness. The only problem I did have was when I was in labor with my second son and they put in the epidural. They couldn't find my blood pressure and I passed out and vomited on the table, but I kind of chalked that up to nerves and the fact that I had already been in labor for 20 some odd hours I had my first son when I was 27, my second son when I was 29 and I haven't had a single problem...until now. I am 31 and all of a sudden the fainting spells, the nausea, the hot sweats, the blacking has all come back and with a vengeance! I am having episodes almost every day. I am absolutely exhausted all day long (I know that probably also has to do with taking constant care of a 2 year old and a 1 year old as well )

Has anyone else dealt with the symptoms going away and then all of a sudden coming back? I am not on the medication because I have been almost 9 years without symptoms. My concern with going back on the medication is that we are wanting to try for our third child within a few months...I don't want to get on the medication and than right back off again. Anyone out there had symptoms come and go? Or had any complications with pregnancy/labor/post partum?
