Hi Pam @pamclark, I have no experience with cough syncope but do agree with suggestions from @lisalucier and @dawn_giacabazi. I'm not sure if it's an option for you but Mayo Clinic is very good at diagnosing difficult and rare conditions. If you would like to seek help from Mayo Clinic, you can contact one of their appointment offices. The contact information for Minnesota, Arizona and Florida can be found here:

I did find some references which may be helpful understanding the condition.

NIH – Diagnosis and treatment of syncope
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1861366/

RepiratoryMedicine – Cough Syncopy
https://www.resmedjournal.com/article/S0954-6111(13)00435-6/fulltext

I think recording the episodes and keeping a log until you get help is a good idea. I think this will help the doctors/specialists diagnose the cause and come up with a treatment. Hoping you find some answers soon.

John

Thank you for the resources. I am trying to capture the full episodes on video. They are so sudden, I am almost never in the room.
