Re: Just diagnosed with Vagal Reaction

From: maggie


Hi Kim Could you please post some of your tips here? I'd love to hear what you're doing. I've been increasing water and salt, and have been drinking rehydration fluid - this is to increase blood volume. Too soon to tell if it'll keep me from fainting. I've also heard that doing isometric exercise (clenching all your muscles) also helps get your blood pressure up if you are having an attack. I'd love to hear what others are doing. Maggie
