Re: Thank-You!

I too live in the UK. I also had a bad experience with Consultants to begin with. Luckily I was put in touch with a consultant here in Birmingham (UK). Most doctors I had ever seen told me I would grow out of the fainting, the underlying problem that none of them ever found was far more serious than any of us had ever thought. Although I have taken steps to prevent any further fainting, the whole thing still psychs me out more than I'd like to admit too. Stick with it, you'll realise your first consultant is probably an idiot, ...I did.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. 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.
