Customer Question
I have over the...

I have over the last six weeks collapsed 3 times. I have been to the E/R. When I went they keep me over night to check my heart. I told them it was not a heart attack. After 24 hour observation they told me it was not a heart attack. About 2 years ago I had a head injury. The six weeks ago I hurt my back. Can you tell me anything it maybe

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

My family has had high blood pressure and Afib. Other than the collapsing pretty fair

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am sorry you collapsed.

how old are you?

are you male or female?

diabetes can cause your blood glucose levels to go too high or low

too low can cause you to collapse.

do you take insulin?

did you check your blood sugar levels when you collapsed? your blood pressure? low blood pressure can cause fainting as well.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
