VasoVagal and Marathon Training

From: Nancy


I have had Vaso Vagal episodes for my whole life. They seemed to have gotten better after I had my children and I was even able to have blood drawn many times and felt ok. Recently I've been training for a marathon and the symptoms are occuring worse than ever. Could this training be affecting me?
