Re: V V S



When you pass out once a week, or in the MRI test, what is making you pass out? Is there a specific pain or stimulus that makes it happen quickly? Or does it happen more slowly after a feeling of rising anxiety and panic? I have had panic induce the feelings of VVS, but have wondered if panic alone could actually cause passing out.

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.
