Massage causes problems

From: Patti


Recently I had a massage because I have had a pinched nerve in my shoulder for quite a long time. The therapist was pretty tough. When completed my heart started to flip flop for about an hour. Later when I did cold and heat treatments it would start all over again. That night it got really bad. I called my heart doctor. I have an enlarged heart, irregular heart beat, and have fainted in the past. I am on Zebeta. He told me to come in for an EKG. He told me I have VasoVagal Response yet it doesn't seem like other responses on the discussion board. I can't find an article to give me an explanation of the problem. Help!
