Your profile is much like mine. I am in my 60's and have fainted several times over the last 25 years - maybe longer but did not know my symptoms were VV at the time. I printed the stuff out for my own doctor that I got off the Mayo Clinic web page (key word 'faint'). I think he might have taken offense when I did that but I think I got his attention. Also, when I fainted in San Diego in December my doctor was inundated with emergency treatment reports he could not ignore. Triggers and treatments seem to vary widely. i'd switch doctors if I couldn't find a sympathetic one. I was happy at ruling out all the scarier possibilities. I am happy with not being on any meds. I tried some 15 years ago and did not like the way they made me feel, but others feel like they are not able to function without them.
