Vaso Vagal  please help

From: Allison


Hello everyone. I'm 14 years old and a couple months ago I was diagnosed with Vaso Vegal. I seem to have it a lot. I am a person who enjoys performing, though I do tend to get little nervous before I perform. The Vaso Vegal thing seems to get worse and worse to where I have it(a dizzy feeling, hottness) almost every week, though I don't faint. I have only fainted twice though as I said I seem to have it a lot. I feel very sad because this really has limited me. My parents tell me I shouldn't let this limit me from doing what I want, but it does to a very large degree in many things. Sometimes I can't even get through dance class without this dizzy/hot feeling. I love performing, but I do get nervous sometimes and I am afraid that I might start having this Vaso Vagal thing start up before I go up on stage. If there is anything anyone can suggest other than breath deep please reply. Thank you! Allison
