Sara Brautigam has regular brushes with death and in one year was pronounced clinically dead 36 times. The 21-year-old was diagnosed with Postural orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS) four years ago which makes her heart stop beating. She experiences rapid palpitations that regularly cause her heart to stop beating and her blood pressure to plummet to what doctors record as clinically dead. Back to life Sara from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, said each time her heart stops medics have to inflict pain on her to shock her into coming back to life. She said: "When it happens paramedics try and do anything to inflict pain to try and shock me into coming back to life. "A lot of the time I'll wake up with big bruises. On one occasion they ripped an acrylic nail off but that still didn't make me flinch." Sara said that she has contacted people with PoTS, but none of those people's hearts have stopped. via BT.
