Re: Vaso-Vagal Syndrome



I am 62 and have had VV for years off and on. My symptoms have subsided somewhat but I did have one a week ago but did not faint. What the heck are you doing at an amusement park? I learned long ago not to go on any rides that would cause vertigo - before I knew there was a VV name attached to it. Sounds like you have an awful lot of triggers. What works for me obviously doesn't work for a whole lot of people but I really have learned to pay close attention to my body. I notice if I am doing too much I just slow down and keep hydrated and keep my feet up, I do slow breathing relaxation. Good luck.
