Re: My episodes vaso-vagal syncope



The description of your episodes are identical to mine. As you mentioned Doctors have no cure and have advised me to learn to live with the condition which has been an on-going adjustment for the past 5 years. At age 54 my employer put me on Long Term Disability because my job involved extensive outside work and company vehicle driving. Yesterday I recieved the decision from Social Security Administration that I was approved for Disabilty due to my condition. I would much rather be able to work but the correct decision with vasovagal in my case was Disability.

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.
