Re: Learn to recognise the precursors. Manage the problem.



I recently had my first 'unprovoked' VV attack, and I had seizures following loss of conciousness. initially I was diagnosed with epilepsy, then further tests resulted in the VV syncope diagnosis. I have been further advised to get a pacemaker fitted so that a VV attack cannot result in a faint.

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.
