Re: Vasovagel diagnosis and what to do



I too am a basketball referee and I read your note with interest. I have gotten vv with severe pain, a few times after exercising a lot and experiencing severe leg cramps. Lately I have been drinking a lot of fluids before, during and after exercising. I take wate, gatorade and similar type fluids and have had much less cramping.

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.
