Re: Looking for a Specialist in Vasovagal in Northeastern US

From: Ruth


How can I get information on treating vaso-vagal symptoms. They seem to be increasing, are mostly related to gastrointestinal problems. Beta Blockers have not helped. I never had these symptoms when younger and have only developed them in the last 7 years or so. I am now in my 60's. Regular cardiac testing results come back negative. I'm about to undergo a 30 day loop monitor test. Is there anything I can do to prevent the black outs? I usually do not feel them coming on.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
