vaso vagal syndrome

From: JAB


I am going for a cardiologists appointment next week for vaso vagal syndrome. My symptoms have been fainting spells with severe cramping and nausea before hand. I have had about 4 or 5 fainting spells in the last year. Although I have had some other close calls. I also have MS and suffer from constipation like once every 6 to 7 days. It then is usually relieved with Correctol because nothing else is working. Do people with this syndrome faint all the time or is it usually few and far between. I am curious to see if I will have to do the tilt test and if somebody has experience it could you tell me what it is like? Thanks for any input as this is all new to me. My gasterenologist recommend for me to see the heart Dr. He is baffled by my bowel problems.
