black outs syncope

I am a 23 year old female who has had many black outs over the last 2 years.
i have around 2-4 blacks out weekly.
i have had a tilt table test and lots of ECG. i have had brain scans.
still i have no anwer to why this happens to me.
most of the time i do injury my self from the fall and have knocked myself out for long periods of time, to find myself in hopsital.
i have a reveal device in my chest, which show no problems with my heart.
i sometimes cant see before i have a blackout and some times i am unawear that i have had a black out.
i have now had to give up work and spend most of time at home.

Hi! I am new, just figuring things out here. But, I noticed your question concerning low blood pressure. I have to watch my blood pressure daily, due to Adrenal Insufficiency.  My Adrenals do not produce cortisol, (I think), in fact, they do not produce anything they are supposed to. I know stress, both mental & physical have everything to do with this. Mine quit working due to several things. My pituitary is non-functioning, plus I've had a-lot of surgeries, but it was the 7 in less than 14 months, plus my bi-polar daughter! Anyway, when my stress gets out of hand, my blood pressure drops & I go into a "Crisis", which means I need a shot of steroids, (I have a supply of pre-filled needles), plus must take oral steroids daily. Have you been experiencing a-lot of fatique lately?? Mood swongs?? Anyway, if any of this sounds familiar, you probably should see an Endocrologist. I have an inherited disease that involves the whole Endocrine system. Very confusing, to say the least. But, this is a small portion of one of my issues, that does include low blood pressure. I wish you luck in getting a correct diagnosis, as I know, if your pressure drops too low, you may not wake up! This, you must avoid!!! With best wishes, Periwinkle

Hello - I know someone who recently has been diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope.  This sounds like it may be what you have, but you will need a workup by a specialist to determine whether or not that is the case.  Have you been to an electrophysiologist?

Emitt, going to.electrophysilogist is what u need to do. That is who.diagnosed me. We haven't found the right treatment yet but at least know what wrong. Neurocardiogenic syncope is one of.the autonomic dysfunctions. There r many different ones.
