driving with vaso vagal

From: Pat Morgan England


Thank you for reposting the comments pre 21st March. My daughter was very interested in the ones referring to salt and drinking a lot. She has always had a preference for salty flavoured food and is always thirsty and has always drunk a lot of water daily. At the moment because we are waiting on a proper diagnosis, she is being sent for brain scans, she is not allowed to drive is this normal if she has Vaso Vagal? She has never been ill when driving. There are so many symptoms in other people's comments that she can relate to, fainting with needles, having teeth out etc. so usually associates it with pain of some sort but her past two attacks seem unrelated to anything unpleasant which makes it hard to tie everything together.You all seem to be in the USA do you know if there are people in England suffering with this in your Forum? We would like to compare treatments etc. Thanks
