hiya, during a tilt test i had an asytope of 15 seconds. after fighting to be referred to a cardiologist i was and he has said deal with it. he wont do any heart tests to rule out a heart problem nor put me on meds or give me a pacemaker. i have heart disease that runs through both of my families. i also have bad chest pains and breathlessness everyday and even walking short distances has become torture for me. he said this is not connected to neurally mediated syncope but is not going to test my heart. i was told by a neurologist last year that i had 2 tumours in my brain but they was not affecting me in anyway. im starting to think if its not an underlying heart problem causing my syncope then mabye its the tumours? im stuck between a rock and a hard place and dont know what to do. i have many symptoms everyday and cant see why no one is trying to help me? how can i lead a normal life when i struggle even to get out of bed everyday? please help?
Based on your past medical history, current symptoms, and abnormal tilt test, I would suggest seeking another opinion from another physician. Your quality of life seems to be suffering and I would want to make sure that a thorough evaluation by history, physical exam, and appropriate testing can be performed.
