VasaVagal Nerve in stomach-Help Please!

From: Maria in Florida


Hi to everyone. I sure hope someone can help me out here. Up until 6 months a go I was a very healthy, happy 40 year old. It is all linked to when I eat and 2 of my friends that are nurses said it sounds like the vasavagal nerve in my stomach, something is pushing on it. I start to feel real bad all over then get really dizzy and my heart rate goes sky high and feels like my heart will jump out of my chest and I almost pass out. I have lost 12 pounds since last Monday, because I cannot eat. I have to eat at night so I can take the Toprol XL and it does not matter what I eat, the other night it was room temp water and 3 crackers that set it off. I need to get my life back. I have been checking out Websites and need some direction PLEASE! I also have had the constant running to the bathroom for this time too. Everything goes right through me. I had a colonscopy and endoscopy about 4 weeks ago and he found a samll hernia in my stomach and the nucous is abnormal, but that was all. I had my tonsils out when I was 3 and never in the hospital or even had a brokenbone. Now my life has been put on hold. I have not been able to work and was in the hospital again Monday and Tuesday last week. They have ruled out panic attacks. Oh yes and my stomach hurts me all the time. PLEASE if there is anyone out there with any feedback, links, articles, doctors to see, please send the info along to me, I really need to get my life back and I want some quality of life again. Thank you very much! Maria in Lake Worth Florida
