I think VV can be related to stress, but isn't always. Sometimes the VV nerve gets stimulated and there hasn't been anything stressful going on. Other times, it seems to be a contributing factor to an episode. There have been numerous times many of us who have contributed to this forum have warded off the complete faints by recognizing the symptons, elevating one's feet, drinking water, doing relaxing techniques, etc.

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.
