Re: 10 yr old with vaso vagal

From: jenna


HI, my name is Jenna and im 19. I also have v.v. The doctors told me i would grow out of it as well. I understand the stress side of it, I have had this now for 6 months, I am scared to leave my house because im afraid i will pass out. This all started my grandfather had his heartattack, and i was stress about it. I have had this for a long period of time so I can now talk myself into an episode. If i get a little dizzy I will remember what used to happen and how it woudl get worse and my brain takes over and makes me more dizzy then I prolly would have gotten. I have gotten all of the tests you are talking about as well. I also have minor seizures when i pass out. There is a wonderfull doctor at the cleveland clinic in cleveland ohio, I dont know where you are from but she has helped me a lot and she is very worth going to see. Her name is Dr. Fouad. I hope this helps.
