I have been suffering from vaso-vagal episodes for a few years now. My first one was from a food (nut) allergy reaction. A coule may have been a result of a stomoch virus. I can also feel the onset of these episodes from stron odors like candle shops and fingernail studios. Each time it starts with the stomach nassua, skin getting very flush, bloodshot eyes and then KNOWING check out time is here. What treatment or medication is available for us? I have seen a neurologist and I have an appointment coming up with a GI specialist. Which medical specialty seems to be offering us the most help?
