I suffered a heart attack about 13 years ago and since then I have had periods of chest pain. Over the last 5 years I have suffered 3 syncopes and each time they have failed to diagnose the cause.
On my second syncope the cardiologist decide to insert a reveal device, thank fully. Ths has shown numerous periods of ectopics, although no one has said anything about it. On my latest episode my local hospital decided that I had had a focal seizure and started to treat me for this condition.
As a result I was discharged with chest discomfort and breathlessness and unable to perform "normal" tasks.
I was unhappy with this and persued variuos specialist, via my private medical insurance, to see if I could get a more accurate diagnosis.
Surfice to say that I have now had it confirmed that I do not suffer focal seizures but the causes of my chest discomfort and syncopes have been down to the signifcant number of ectopics that I suffer from.
I have now been placed on Flecainide 50mg BD to see if that can correct the situation. If this is not the answer then it will be stronger drugs and a pacemaker.
Moral of the story You know your body best and if you are not happy keep trying.
For me its fingers crossed that these drugs work and I can bet to a normal life.
Hope all of you are well
