Re: prolongued "near-fainting," or presyncope

From: BKF


Yes, I too have had prolonged spells where I feel light headed and out of sorts. Mine lasted for 8 months of feeling like crap every morning. hanging my head oer the toilet, eventually having at leaste 3 bowel movements before I even left for work. I would feel dizzy untill about 2:00PM. Then I suddenly became my old self again.

The good news is that I did stop. I have had a return of VV symptoms but not the prolonged ones and my bowels have been under control. I have found great comfort in know that others have the same symptoms, as I was starting to feel like I was loosing my mind. If you would like to chat more, you can contact me at
