Re: vaso-vagal syncope

From: jan


I have just had an ...v.v attack, it took me by suprise. although it was the 4th attack i have had in the last 4 years but previously i thought it was brought on by pain, this time i was just sitting enjoying a meal in a restaurant with my family..I'm very worried now cause it may happen at any time..the hospital sent me home said it was v.v. and i will be back to see dr. at hospital in two weeks..i.m afraid they dont know enough here in the u.k about.v.v so if anyone knows any DR.s in the uk. pref. london that specialise in v.v i would love to know . This is the second time i have stop breathing for a 4 seconds..i feel really exhausted afterwards, this is 2 days later and i.m still feeling a bit tired..
