Re: newly diagnosed

I've mentioned this before but I found the site useful. Type in the key word faint (under simple faint - vaso vagal syncope). My biggest help is to lie down on the floor with my feet raised up on the bed or somewhere. I can get the blood to my head that way and avoid a full faint. Keeping hydrated helps too.

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.
