I would suggest you buy an electronic blood pressure monitor -it straps on the wrist, and memorizes about 30 readings of BP and heart rate. (A search on eBay will show you several brands) Then you can start a chart taking readings several times a day, before and after exercise, at bedtime, while sleeping, during an episode etc. This should provide helpful data to a doctor (if he's willing to believe it). Also, keep her hydrated - water, avoid caffeine and alcohol, use salt freely. The med profession does not give V-V enough attention, even though some presidents have had incidents.
