I swear, I felt my heart stop before I passed out. I'm quite familiar with rapid heart rhythm, but not with such a cardiac arrest? What is that?
Three years ago I passed out. The next day I went to work and felt like I was going to faint again. I was rushed to the hospital and almost went into cardiac arrest. Xanax was their answer. I have been on Xanax for 3 years. I want off! It's a bandaid?
You may be right: It sounds like the Xanax (alprazolam) actually worked to prevent fainting; the likely cause was anxiety. And you are correct. There are other effective treatments for anxiety: usually a form of cognitive behavioral therapy which would take a lot of commitment/practice from you.

There is growing recognition of this condition.
Pots is a situation where there is an inappropriate heart rate increase to low blood pressure, but typically don't see more than just a sinus tachycardia.
Sick sinus syndrome tends to have more abnormal findings on ecg.

Vague: This is a vague term which is not typical nomenclature. I assume its referring to a pt with a weak heart called a cardiomyopathy. The pumping function is impaired and thus " insufficient " to meet the bodies needs. Pts like this are prone to episode of cogestive heart failure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
