Re: correct diagnosis?

All that exercise and activity--is she drinking enough water? Dehydration is a factor in my V V episodes. I am to drink 3+ litres of fluid a day, most of which is water. No caffeine beverages or soda--they dehydrate the body. All the strenuous activity may also be depleting her electrolytes. Drink a gatorade type drink to help replace them after the work outs.

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.
