Vaso-Vagal Me too!!

From: Alison Radcliffe


I have just read your article on vaso-vagal. I have had these symptoms for a number of years now fainting, shaking, sweating, vomiting for no apparent reason. I am female, mid thirties; at first I thought it was teh start of diabetes and had numerous blood tests which came back normal. However the last time I had blood tests I collapsed at teh Hospital and ended up in A & E. I have since been referred to a neurologist and could not understand why, he has been referred me for a 24 hours ECG and MRI scan. The neuologist went down the stress, anxiety route which I refuse to accept, one of my attacks was when walking in the lakes - completely stress free.

I too have had lock jaw - I put this down to a windom tooth coming through, in fact over the years I keep putting my symptoms down to not eating on time, have one too many to drink, not taking enough liquids etc.. etc..

I would welcome any updates on these symptoms that you may have. I feel I'm not going mad after all.
