Re: naproxen sodium (Aleve)

Hi- in response to the person whose daughter is leaving for college soon- Please DO NOT let her drive. My little sister had a wreck 3 years ago after having a vagal attack, barely lived, and is still having problems with her reconstructed pelvis. She had not been properly diagnosed before the wreck, but had a tilt test as soon as she was physically able. It was hot in the car, so we think that is what caused the crash, and there was a witness who saw her passed out, slumped over the wheel. Please take proper precautions, as this is potentiall a life-threatening illness.

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.
