Re: Vaso Vagal



My doctor also feels my attacks are vaso-vagal, though the symptoms aree mild compared to some I've read here. Mine are light-headedness, shaky upper limbs and extremities and slight tightness in the chest. The first attack in the grocery store I thought was low blood sugar (though I am not diabetic) or a mild heart attack. I'm 49, male and very fit with no medical issues other than old jock aches and pains. Is there a solution?

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.
