I have had V.V. since April of last year. I would started out with an episode once every three months or so then it went to once a month then weekly. Now I am fainting or averting a faint once or twice a day. I have passed out standing and sitting. I can't stand longer than 15 in one spot or stand in a line. I get too hot and I faint. My doc said I have a rare/ serious form of V.V. Doesanyone else have it this bad? I am am drinking nothing but water and tons of it. I am adding salt to my food, nothing seems to be helping. I am going for a tilt table test on March 8th. The doctor said he would decided what to after the results come back from that test. I am not allowed to work or drive now because it is so bad. I am scared to be alone with my young kids when my husband is at work for fear I might pass out. Any suggestions would be appriciated. Thanks!
