Re: please help!  Incontinence and VV?

From: Debbie


I've had about 10 or so episodes and about 1/2 of them involved incontinence and 1/2 of those were both urinary and bowel. (unfortunately all of my episodes have been in public places so you can imagine the embarrasment...)

Is it a cardiologist who you're seeing about VV? If not, you might want to consider it - it took over 7 different doctors and countless tests before I finally was referred to a cardiologist and she knew exactly what it was.

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.
