vaso vagal and running

From: Mark


Aged 43. Running nad racing for 30 years! Presently under further investigations for what seems likely is a 15 month onset of varying degrees of vaso vagal breathing flutters, occasional dizziness and faints. Normally run between 30 - 40 miles/week. Race at sub 6 min/mile pace. Any other unners out there share this experience? Is this treatable or am I resigned to slowing right down?
