Absolutely not: B"sd Thats fascinating and a new one to me. Brings to mind possiblity of abnormal adrenaline release seen in an endocrine condition called pheochromocytoma. Much depends on the actual heart rate and rhythm. Seems that the best woud be to have ECG monitor during event . Also, very important to know about blood pressure in general and especially during the spells.
