Hello. Long post but I'm hoping for advice. I'm 20 years old and since I was 3 I've passed out/had seizures. The doctors don't know what causes them. I've had numerous ECGs, a tilt table test, a brain MRI and a heart scan. I can have a seizure if I'm extremely shocked, scared or ill with a fever. But usually they occur randomly. The last seizure I had was two months ago, I woke around 4am with leg cramp and ended up having a seizure. Peculiar I know.

A recent 4 day ECG picked up that I have a second degree type 1 AV block and sinus tachycardia. However a few days ago I read about the condition Long QT syndrome. Is it possible I could have this? My ECGs have always been pretty normal and I was even in hospital for two days under observation on an ECG and it wasn't mentioned and I was discharged. So, would an ECG definitely pick this up? Can I rest assured I haven't got it? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

i don't know about the condition. you have been given the okay, thus i would not over worry about the information you have read. just chat with your gp in the next visit. welcome to the forum. others with more info may be able to assist. i live with chronic heart disease, along with other diseases and disorders. take care

my conditions are mere aspects of me, they do not define me.
