hi i am 42 and over the weekend passed out, unlike when you feel faint you know its happening i knew nothing. i went to bed and an hour later woke very thirsty, got out of bed went down stairs made a drink and on the way back up the stairs just collapsed, i came round as the paramedics arrived. my blood presure was low and i was cold and shut down. ecg was normal at the hospital the only abnormallity was a tacycardia of 130-145 which settled when laying flat. i was kept in hospital til this settled 14hours later. i am stil geting intermitant heart racing and cold clamy hands is this anxiety? Gp checked my blood pressure to day which was ok but pulse 140 bpm.
