Just had a procedure and the anaesthetist suggested this. I’m literally in the recovery room right now.

It never clicked that it could be the case.

I got diagnosed with ADHD at 28 and I got diagnosed with vasovagal syncope and 3rd degree heart block at 13. Started Dex last year.

I have a pacemaker installed. This makes so much sense after the anaesthetist explained the adrenaline is responsible for conduction in the Vegas nerve.

Identical story with the tilt table test.

I haven’t needed the pacemaker for literally 12 years out of 15 so it’s turned off now, looking to take it out.

ADHD sure is interesting.

Let me know if you have any questions,
