Have you had it happen more than once? I’d love to have my husband run 23andme but since he has had it happen THREE times! But he’s a codger about it, being a geneticist himself. You’d think he’d WANT to know, but he poo-poo’s this stuff.

At any rate, his happened during orgasm, and he had a tendency to hold his breath which increased the pressure in his jugular or some such, triggering the TGA. Now he focuses on breathing and hasn’t had one since. Of course, the time spread was something like five years between the first two and two years between the second two, and it has been a couple of years, so we shall see.

Have you identified a trigger?
