Re: vaso-vagal syncope

From: Falcon


For almost 2 years I was having these symptoms. I have see over 5 doctors and was always going to the emergency room. Just the other night I went to the emergency room and as soon as I described the symptoms the Doctor knew exactly what it was, vaso-vagal syncope. Thank you Doctor Murphy. Now that I know what this is I can better Identify how to control it. Thank you for this web site. Some of the articles I've been reading really help me. I don't have these spells all the time, but it seems like they happen after I eat. Does anyone else experience them after eating?
