Attack last Thursday

From: RRC


Last Thursday I was going to get some things for my cold, I was alone. I got out of the car and went down. Two guys saw me and they called the police - they thought I was drunk. My son came and took me to the hospital. Two different doctors told me I had Vaso-Vagal Syncope. This was not my first attack; as a matter of fact I retired because of it. Where can I go for help?? My family doctor also told me it was VasoVagal;but didn't offer any suggestions of who to see. Who should I see??
