Re: Hereditary



Last month one of my brothers, who I don't have much contact with, revealed at age 58 that he tended to faint easily, and I told him about VVS. I had always heard that my great-grandfather's wife had some odd malady where she never felt right, was always seeking some cure, and was considered a hyprochondriac. I think now she probably had VVS which led to anxiety attacks, which is where we got it from.

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.
