Just found out about VV-Help!

From: jeanne


I have been having weird symptoms in the last few months. Diagnosed years ago with IBS but it has been severe for no reason I can see since october. I also have been dizzy, want to throw up for no reason, esp. when I'm hungry or once in the middle of the night. I get a severe pain in my back on the left middle part when I have been hungry and it goes away as soon as I eat and lie down. I get hot flashes (I'm only 37) but cold seems to exacerbate my dizziness. I also found when I saw my doctor yesterday and she mentioned the vasal nerve that my blood pressure is 80/60. I take Trileptal for depression (any connection to epilepsy and its connection to VV?) I also recently started on some thyroid pills, take other supplements as advised by a doctor trying to help the IBS and have taken Aleve (I noticed someone mentioned a connection). Any thoughts on this? I am shocked about this condition and wonder how long I may have had it. My poor body is really struggling.
