Standing too long is a standard reason for VV response. That is why a tilt test is used to diagnose VV.

If standing for too long doesn't bring on VV then it is unlikely the person has VV to begin with.

BTW that is what my consultant, who is a specialist in VV told me.


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.
