    So my girlfriend was diagnosed with Long QT syndrome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_QT_Syndrome

    That's the wiki for it. Anyway, she is a ballerina and is now afraid to do anything because her doctors have scared her into not doing anything cardio anymore.

    Anyway, anybody know anything she can still do that won't like.. make her suddenly die?

    Hey, you know who might know something about this? Doctors. Yeah.

    I'm sure they're not trying to scare her into a lifestyle with little to no exercise for no reason.

    yeah. i'm gonna have to go with this. Does she have a cardiologist? He'd be the best one to ask.
