Re: vaso vagal syncope



I have recently been diagnosed with this condition, and have been advised that I can get a pacemaker fitted to combat this problem, at least in my case. As far as I understand it, the vasovagal nerve is something to do with heart/ brain electrical signals, and sometimes due to 'wrong' signals the heart slows down too much and can even stop for a few seconds. This causes the faint as not enough blood is getting to the brain. A pacemaker would prevent the heart 'slowdown' and no faint could then occur... If anyone wishes to contact me on this please go ahead, hope I can be of help.....
