Hi everyone! I'm 30 years old & have: MVP (with mild regurgitation), sick sinus syndrome, PVC's, PAC's, Sinus bradycardia & tachycardia, V-Tach, 8 Heart Attacks, chronic Syncope/fainting (since age 10), non-epileptic seizures (since age 21), chest pains, anxiety, congenital heart defects, tricuspid & pulmonary valves regurgitate.  I also have a physical disability (Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita).  I'm from Australia & moved to the USA to try to get better medical help. I've been told i need an ICD (pacemaker/ defibrillator) but no doctor is willing to yet, due to my lack of health insurance.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
