vaso-vagal syncope

From: Mrs Howells           E-Mail


I have just been diagnosed with this condition and over the past 18 months i have been feeling generaly unwell and suffering from dizzy spells conbined with my heart beat racing / cold sweats and from time to time also fainting. Some days i am able to cope fully with everyday chiors and i can function fully , but some days i cant seem to deal with mundain everyday tasks. After the episodes of fainting or as i call it shutting down the only thing i can do to recover is to sleep for 2-4 hours but i do tend to feel drained pritty much for the rest of the day. Would be interested in hearing from anybody else who is suffering from this condition as here in the u.k there is not much know at this point
