Re: Vaso-vagal, does anyone have these symptoms?- Answer



Ask yourself what you were or weren't doing when the attack happened. If you had been sick you were probably dehydrated. That is the biggest cause. If you were sick you were probably noy eating or drinking so your resistance to these attacke was suppressed. My attacks happened when I was lying down, until recently when it happened on a plane. I assume that if you are feeling ill, it can happen anywhere. Read the other comments about not just drinking water, but Gatorade, since you also need to keep the potassium in your system.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
