Re: VV and allergires

From: Cheryl


Hi! Yes, I have had two times where I has a V.V. reaction from an allergy. Both times were to a strong mans cologne. Normally when I pass out I am standing, but with these times I was sitting and my head started spinning and then I passed out. I was told that allergies can trigger V.V. I was told to try and avoid things that you know could trigger it. Sometimes that isn't easy though! Good Luck! I hope this helps a little.
