Re: Driving with Vaso Vagal

From: Still Driving in San Diego


I am a 58 yr old female, work in real estate. I was faced with the loss of drivers license unless I was controlled by meds (which made me like a zombie) or got a pacemaker, which I opted for. I don't know if this would work for everyone, but it has helped me, and I have not had an attack in 4 years. I was diagnosed with Neurocardio Syncope with Vasovagal depressor. I can drive and take no meds. Good luck!

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.
