I passed out last week (lost conscious), first time ever in my entire life, though there have been a couple instances years and years ago where I came close to it but didn’t actually lose consciousness. However those times I had good reason (after giving blood, walking after surgery) this time there was no reason . I was taken to the ER and after a lot of testing (mostly cardiac) no cause was found and they let me go. Unfortunately, because no treatable cause was found I have lost driving privileges for 6 months. I haven’t read much of a Chiari/syncope link and wonder if anyone else has experienced this.
To say this has got me upset is an understatement. With no cause to be found I’m continually afraid it will happen again and am afraid to leave the house. My Chiari is “borderline” and doctors have totally ignored it so whether or not any of my symptoms are caused by Chiari is still unknown.
