Re: VV - Ischemic colitis

From: Lisa


Linda, hy husband just had a second episode of loss of consiousness and colitis. He is currently in the hospital, with hopes to be home in the morning. he begins with abdominal pain, looses consiousness, and is diagnosed with colitis. Both treating physicians can only guess that is was a vagal response???? This is an unconfortable position to be in, the Dr.'s are not too sure what is happening.

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.
