Hi there, I'm new here and am wondering if anyone can help. My 16yr daughter had her dual chamber pm inserted Nov 07. In March 08 she had a syncope episode due to hypotension. Her Cardio prescribed Florinef - it increased her BP within a day but she battled with dizziness for a bout week after starting the treatment. He stopped the Florinef after 1 months treatment. Now, she has had a few sycnope episodes due to hypotension again, he has prescribed Florinef and increased her minimum heart rate. After 1 & half weeks on the florinef, her BP is sort of stable but she is still battling with dizziness and is battling with her vision (focus). She has had the Halter monitor on again, had a syncope with it on and the results are all good. Had EEG - all ok.
Any ideas? The neurologist & cardio are beginning to think it is psychological. She is a very active/sporty child with a very happy go lucky attitude and does not get stressed out by much. No exams, no friends or family issues and no boyfriend at the moment.
We as parents are feeling very frustrated.Thanx for any input.
