Re: Vaso-Vagal

From: Beth


I just found this site. It is so amazing that so many people have this condition. The doctors always blamed it on my Mitral Valve Prolapse. They even said I was epileptic. I finally had the tilt test done at age 16 and they changed my diagnosis to VVS. I always had a characteristic stomach cramp before hand, I know when it is going to happen and if I take the proper precautions I can stop the episode. I am now 29, this has been happening since I was about 5. I had my daughter a year ago and had no problems with the labor. It tends to happen when I am not taking care of myself and have been sick or stressed. I have been on a beta-blocker for years. I am always tired but I am making it.
