this staarted when i was 3

From: ashley


I am 19 now but when I was about 3, I passed out for no known reason. My doctor had me do all kinds of tests including the tilt table test. I was diagnosed with V.V. They told me that I would grow out of it and for a while I thought i had. Until 3 months ago, I hadnt passed out since I was 13. Now, the spells are back, more frequent than ever. Right now,Im wearing a heart monitor and Im about to redo all of the tests from before. I get really emotional after I wake up from a spell. I cry, get sick to mt stomache, have blurred vision, it feels all tingly in my head and neck. Whats really weird is that I feel it coming about 5 second before I pass out. My blood pressur normally is112/80. After an episode yesterday it was100/59. Do you think this is V.V or something else? Thank you.
