Hi all I just joined. My name is Karina. I am 43 years old. On Nov. 17,2017 I started passing out. I went to Neurologist office and ER a few times ( I have MS 11 year's end of April hence Neurologist).
I have passed out repeatedly everyday since. My legs also jerk( which I call seizures). I was tested and don't have epilepsy. Am glad. But still no answer from doctors until I get a new primary doctor.
I saw him on Dec. 26th and on Dec. 28th. I went in on 28th to get results from lab work. He listened to my heart and asked if I knew I had an irregular heartbeat. I said yes. I have been told this in the past. No one tried to figure out why. So I didn't think it was a problem.
He told me I had AFib after doing an EKG. All the ER doctors said was I was having Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures. Basically they said it was Psychlogical not medical.
I see Cardiologist on Jan. 11th 2018. I am scared alot. Since all this happened I use a walker. I usually get a headache before I pass out or after I pass out. I live with an older sister who has helped alot. Also my Dad has come from Montana ( I live in Washington) to help out so my sister can work. I looked up Cardiologist I am going to see. He has good ratings. Hope to get answers and no longer pass out. Then my Dad can go home and I can do more for myself hopefully.
