Husband Vaso Vagal

From: his wife laurie


over the past few yrs my husband has been experiencing such episodes only in the morning when he gets up to go to work at 3:15 in the morning. He was diagnosed with Vaso Vagal just yesterday and his doctor says that it is not treatable and that it is something he will have to live with. I will not accept that as an answer. The episodes always happen when he has his morning bowel movement. He has said that it feels like he is going to die. He has left puddles of sweat on the floor the size of a dinner plate. He states that he is paralyzed during the attacks. HELP!!! Please don't tell my husband that I called his Doctor!!! lol He would be a little mad to say the least!!! Thank you all for any help that you can provide.
