My mother was diagnosed today with VV. She was told there was no real treatmaent other than some more blood preasure med. She was also told that her episodes weren't frequent enough to warrent a tilt-table-test. She has been having episodes for 3 months and has had 3 this past week. Yesterday was the first time she actually passed out. Is this just the way life is going to be for her? Please help!
