Vaso-Vagal Discussion

[ Home | Contents | Search | Post | Reply | Next | Previous | Up ]




I am a 43 year old male with CFS and Eppstein Barr. I have a very active work out program; weight training and cardio workouts. I have had vaso-vagal type attacks twice this year both ocasions were on the first day of my semester classes at college. One attack took placed during a normal workout and one immeadiatly after. The symptoms were the same as discribed in you letter. I saw my physician today and she said it was most likely vaso-vagal. I recalled one of my physicians diagnosing this condition 4 years ago after my complaint to him of dizzyness a fatigue followed by sweats. I have allways attributed these symptoms to cfs. Is their any relation of cfs and vaso-vagal?
