  1. They would most likely check you with a pulse oximeter, and probably give you a breathing treatment. I get minor cases of asthma caused by pollen allergy. I dont wheeze, but tend to cough and gasp. Between fits of coughing and gasping, you wouldn't know I am having a attack. The few times I have went to the er for this, I told them what was happening, what I needed, got the breathing treatment, symptoms resolved and I went on my way. Never had a problem getting treatment for this.
  2. "RAVENOUS for food!" I haven't really been on midodrine long enough to notice any weight fluctuation, but it does make me very hungry! I cant eat in the morning (I vomit it back up) so I get awfully hungry by lunch time with the midodrine. I take 5mg twice a day

I don't think I will need either, I came to the conclusion I would skip having the ablation and only consider it or a pacemaker if it was absolutely needed to save my life.

  5. I am interested in the same thing! I live about a hour outside of Pittsburgh, and am trying to find a doctor in my insurence coverage area. If you dont mind me asking, what insurence do you have? Have you tried UPMC? I am trying to determine if UPMC has any doctors that would be helpful. It might be worth a call. Sorry I dont know any doctors to suggest, but I will sure let you know if I find one!
