Re: Vaso-Vagal episodes daily

Drinking tons of water is never a great idea, in my opinion. You are flushing minerals out of your system for one thing. Consider an electrolyte drink like Shaklee "Performance" forone drink. Do you recall a fairly recent college hazing incident where a student died when being forced to drink "tons" of water? Consider buying a blood pressure monitor (wrist type) and take several readings a day. The data may give a clue to your doctor. Best of luck to you.

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.
