Re: Night time V-V

From: John K


So much for the raised leg theory. I still plan to try that in a future event. Another thing to try is the anti-"G force" breathing that pilots do in order to keep from passing out. You and I and only a few others get the night-time V-V. It would be great to discover some reason for it- like stress from some dream, or runaway heartbeat, irregular heartbeat etc. I am now 15 months without an event, but I'm not bragging. Stay in touch.
