I've suffered from vasovagal syncope and PVC's since I was a teenager and I've recently been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis--with Migraine (which came first?? Hmmm). I have two children, a boy and a girl aged 15 and 12 respectively. They deserve a healthy mom, and
[More] a good, active life. Turns out though---Life Is Good!!!
Hello. My 11yo niece just had her first vasovagal syncope with pvcs. They think everything is fine, but I am not yet convinced. They have not done a tilt table or a holter or event monitor. My concern arises primarily because I have microvascular angina and frequent pvcs with a history of nsvt.
I know that we women with heart issues can get to the point where it is all just "normal for me" and we stop being concerned, however I also know as someone in the medical field that your episodes of nsvt and svt can be life threatening. Many "healthy" people drop dead each year from these ventricular arrhythmias. I hope you have spoken to your doctor about the possibility of a defibrillator. At the very least you need to be wearing a medic alert.
