Re: Vaso Vagal

If your not sure in my case if it's 'vaso vagal sycope', some of you may want to look up "neurogenic hypotensive disorder" more from standing up quickly or standing to long (soldiers disease..passing out at drill-parade). My fainting occurs always after eating. Tried lots of tests & medications. Still no true diagnosis. If I'm out for dinner I sometimes take a 'Sudafed Tablet' about 10 minutes before eating. Sounds strange that a decongestant could help but it works well. Anybody else have after eating symptoms?

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.
