Im new here and i'm after some advice and support. Im 20 years old and for the past 3 years ive been experiencing extreme dizziness and blackouts when i stand in one place for too long, i also always feel tired and like ive got no energy yet all my blood tests have been normal. Doctors have always ignored my symptoms and have said that i will grow out of them which has frustrated me so much. It is now starting to affect my life and work and finally i am being listened to after whilst at work (im a student nurse) a machine read my pulse as being 220bpm whilst i was feeling dizzy. i have had a 48hr tape done and the dr said there were 'no significant arythmias' and i am due to have a tilt table test next week. I am really anxious about
the test and the results. I think i am more anxious that they wont find anything and that i'll be ignored again. I know there is something wrong and i cant continue like this but my cardiologist seems determined to prove that im making it up rather than being determined to help me. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? I have found information on vasovagal syndrome but i dont know alot about
it and the treatment. Sorry to waffle on, im just very scared that i'll never feel well.
