Re: VasaVagal Nerve in stomach-Help Please!

From: leah-UK


Hi, I know exactly what your going through. the vagal nerve runs from behind your ear down past heart into stomach.It is part of the Parasympathetic nervouse (excuse spelling) This is why if an irrritation in the stomach accurs it triggers a vasovagal ep! i like u was compleatly healthy untill 9 month ago . I often get a vv after eating like you but have found that not going too long without food helps so eat small and often.Also this regulates blood sugar which can be a trigger? Keep up your salt, and try to stay calm. i know this is so dificult when the uncertanty of an episode looms over you. If poss try to see an Autonomic nerve specialist. mine happens also when i eat wheat and have a bouwl movment, this has never been a problem before.
