did your dr seem concerned at all about the presyncope? if it has happened before or continues ask about a tilt table test or head up tilt test some call it
It can rule out several things and may yield some other answers
hi, is it left or right bundle? (I'm guessing it's the right)
The doctor did not say whether it was a right or a left BBB.
The doctor seemed to have no idea what was causing the dizziness/presyncope. She hardly discussed the EKG. There is a family history of heart disease. Not usually at this early of an age though.
What can this tilt table test show? And would this be administered by a cardiologist?
Thank you both for your responses.
Mine was done by my EP right before I had an ablation; but I've read others have been recommended by GP and cardiologist.
If you google tilt table test you will find lots of info on it. For me it showed I had NCS - neurocardiogenic syncope and OI - orthostatics intolerance, for some others it would show POTS - postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome or a couple of other things.
They hook you up to monitors to check blood pressure, heart activity arrhythmia's etc. You lay on a bed, they put a safety strap across you and then stand you up a certain amount of time (mine was 20 min) they ask tons of questions and watch your monitors and if you're having symptoms they note which ones like dizziness.
At the end of the time, they give you a squirt of nitro or a tablet and watch your symptoms, some at that point pass out, some don't. For me 3 min into the nitro I passed out, if you do, they lay you back flat quick and put your legs up to get your blood to your heart again. My father in law had 5 shots of it before he passed out, so it affects everyone differently.
I would definitely get copies of all of my testing and look them over since they weren't discussed much with you, write down what you don't understand and ask lots of questions.
