Vaso-Vagal, Recently Diagnosed

From: Lauren


I am a sophmore in high school and I was just recently diagnosed with vaso-vagal. It started when I was playing vball and I couldnt cath my breaht which in turn caused me to pass out. Throughout the whole game I was short of breath and dizzy with blurred vision. Sometimes while in the shower I get this blurred and lightheaded thing. Does this sound like what you all have? The dr said I should be able to continue playing with no problem but it just scares me! I would love to hear your responses, thanks so much!
