Vaso-Vagal Just diagnosed today

From: Gary, Georgia, USA


Just got home after two days in the hospital trying to determine why I passed out yesterday morning after having pain which felt like kidney stones. Doctors (Family, Cardioligist, & Urologist) along with at least 6 to 8 different test finally suggested that I may have Vaso-Vagal Syncope. After reading several of the posted articles on this forum, I have to agree that now I think I have had several of these attacks over the last several years. I now have answers to lots of questions I have had over the years. But now I want to know what to do about it!!
