hi I have been having numerous tests for the past 7years coming

Customer Question

hi I have been having numerous tests for the past 7years coming up to eight now! I pass out 3/4 times a week and then there could be nothing for like 6months ive had tilt tests, ecg's, echos and they all come back normal I had a ASD closure and I also have a loop device implanted in my chest but still know one knows why I pass out! it happens when ever it wants how often it wants! the only 1 trigger of my passing out is having a bath the doctors thought it might be the heat but that's not it as have the same temperature that I give my baby so then they thought it could be water but again that's not it as I can go swimming, sauna and steam roon and it wont happen. that is the only trigger. I often don't get a warning if I do then its only 30seconds to just lie down in the recovery position. I could be talking to 1minute then next minute im on the floor! any ideas as to what it could be????
