Re: Blue lips symptom answer

From: Steve R.


Lips turning blue are a sign of lack of oxygen- Vaso-vagal, I was told, is a lack of oxygen to the brain, which causes the brain to short-circuit, so to speak, and makes you pass out. It is the trigger machanism that is different for each person. Some it is the sign of blood, some it is too much drinking, which causes lack of the "proper" liquide and dehydration. I would be concerned that the blue lips are a sign that the epsiodes are longer than normal, as I have not been told my episodes cause that. Mine only last about a minute, I am told.

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.
