I have been having a problem, it started at least a year ago. I have been having spells of dizziness, weakness, and feeling faint. They happen suddenly and for no reason. Usually I am standing up, yesterday it happened while I was sitting on the bus. Sometimes I also feel like I am spacing out...I can't focus on anything. All of these sympots last for no more than 20 minutes, then I begin to feel better.

I thought it was diabetes, so I went to a doctor to get blood drawn. I am 26 and when I was 23 I had Afib, so my doc also is a cardiologist so she gave me echo, stress test, and halter monitor. All tests came back fine. Then I had a tilt table test done...my blood pressure was all over the place. It was at 80/50 100/70. So she has put me on some medication, which hasnt been working much: Florinef Acetate and she gave me a new one yesterday...proamatine is the active ingredient. I was wondering if anyone has these symptoms or knows anything about what I am going through. It is very frustrating, I'll be driving in my car and then I get spaced out and can't focus much.

Thanks in advance

Same thing here bud, EXACTLY.. and no one has this stuff.. its like its REALLY rare, its kinda pissing me off that everyone over looks this.


Only thing is I have never been told I have afib. Had the halter,stress test, EKG.. nothing.. normal.. normal BP. Normal blood sugar ect ect.

Havent had a tilt test yet, how much of a fight would I get if I asked for one?
