Hi, I’m Gabbi 51 years old, for the last 3 years I have been fainting in the night and have not known why. I had a heart loop recorder put in my body, on Thursday it happened again. Basically my heart slowed and stopped for 26 seconds before re starting. I have had a pacemaker installed yesterday the doctor says I have an electrical fault in my heart probably sick sinus syndrome. I feel upset and in shock.
