Really new to the forum. I'm 27. I was diagnosed with Neurocardiogenic syncope a year or so ago. I coded on the table during the tilt table test and had to bought back (even though the Dr doing the test didn't hook up the leads to bring me back because "you're young, you'll be fine".). I don't know how common that is. I did not know that was a risk of the test. But I diagress. I have accepted the fact that my NCS symtoms can come back with a vengence right before my period, however, I have yet to know exactly WHY. I excersise almost everyday, eat right, stay hydrated, and of course no caffine. Yesterday I had a VERY bad day. I was dizzy all day, headache in the morning, weak, had palpataions, almost passed out (I say almost b/c I am on meds, which I believe save me from passing out), and for SOME reason was EXTREMELY hungry all day. Can anyone explain to me why this happens right before my period? I feel very alone and crazy.
