Re: newly diagnosed

From: Becca


I tried to send the following to your email address but it kept bouncing so I thought I would post it here instead.......

You posted a message on the vasovagal message board and I thought I would reply to you with some of the sites that I found to be useful to me. : )

The most useful one for me was they can also send you information in hard copy on the condition.

I also found the following site useful when looking for information for my consultant who told me it was a 'severe mental health problem' (I will add here it is NOT a mental illness) and was looking for possible treatment options for him to try

Incidently you DO NOT have epilepsy, so don't worry about that, vasovagal syncope appears to be caused by drops in blodd pressure/heart rate.

Take care, Becca.

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.
