Re: Vaso-Vagal Syndrome

From: Jenna


Let me start by saying it is not in your head! As you can see there are hundreds of peopel that suffer from this, and we have all been told it is in our heads. I am the same way, I can start feeling dizzy anywhere any time. I also have hypoglysemia (sp?) , I know how that can make you feel dizzy if you dont eat right. I have had VV for about 8-9 months now, and let me tell you anxiety does not help. I have had this for so long that my brain can trip my body into getting dizzy for no reason. I barley leave my house because I am scared something will happen and ill pass out. You can do this to yourself to an extent. I dont even relize that I can talk myself into being dizzy out of fear and anxiety. You dont even know your brain is thinking about being scared half the time. I also have stomach problems, I have a ulcer type sore in my stomach which can throw you into being dizzy. I am not sure where you are from but there is an excelent DR at the cleveland clinic, in cleveland ohio. Her name is DR. Fouad. I am going to a natural healer monday to see if he can help in anyway because I am becoming desperate. I am 20 years old and I cant leave my house. I know exactly how you feel. But I would call dr. Fouad she helped me a little, things are not as bad as they were in the beginning, if you can beleive that they were worse.
