  • I have been diagnosed with CPVT. I've been off medication for a few years and have been playing sports regularly.  I've never had any syncope. I just read that if untreated CPVT is highly lethal. And now I'm starting to care. I have some questions about this disease: Is there any case of remission? Is it curable? Are sports under treatment better than without treatment? Is there a CPVT specialist anywhere in the world? What is the most up-to-date article/research about this disease?
