Presyncope: Unclear if a paroxysmal arrhythmia has been ruled out ( Holter monitor or a loop recorder), the elevated troponin remains of concern and may be the result of a demand/supply mismatch during tachycardia events. Anxiety is always part of such episodes, by itself would not increase troponin level. Further work up is needed.
