Customer Question
Have been diagnosed with neuro-cardiogenic...
Have been diagnosed with neuro-cardiogenic syncope since 1999. Found no relief in symptoms with florinef, Pro Ammitine, salt tablets, and many many more. Finally in 2001 had a pacemaker implanted. In 2003, was diagnosed with ICM and CHF am fully recovered now. Within the last few months my syncope symptoms have gotten worse. During an appointment with my EP - orthostatic intolerance was discovered. Have been tested for adrenals and all labs are normal. But, all functions that are managed by the vagus nerve, stomach, intestines, bladder, eyes, lungs, etc. are not my normal self. What can cause such a drastic change - my EP said if not adrenal the autonomic failure? And, if that is the case, is it really worth going through a battery of tests to confirm what we already know? Is there information that will make treatment more effective, less interruptive, anything? The doctors that I have referrals for don't take insurance which makes this point even more germaine. Thanks a lot for listening - hoping someone has some answers.
