Re: VVS?!? Boy, I wish I had known what it was all these years!



Yeah, passing out cold is pretty frightning... the last time cost me a massive bruise from hitting my head on the corner of.. a wall I think? But see, I've seen stars so many times in my life (like over 100s of times) that I can actually stay in control whilst it happens. And if I'm going to really go out cold, I 'usually' think of calling out to my husband and hopefully it'll wake him from his deep sleep to come help me in time.

The medecine prescribed to you seem very similar to mine. The doctor 2 weeks ago suggested I go on the Nulve and Xanax on a daily basis. So I did take Nulev for a week , but then became severely tired during the day (unfunctional), and then was massively constipated no matter how much water I took in and weirdly enough, being constipated in that same spot caused me to have the VVS symptoms again ( when before it was mostly softer bowels)

It's a relief to know so many people are stucjk in the same predicament, although the root cause for everyone still seems to be a big question-mark

Thanks for replying!
