Re: Questions about Vaso-vagal

From: Ed


The best thing to do, if the symptoms are already there, is to lie down so that if (and when) you fall, you won't hurt yourself. Lying down may also help prevent it from being a full-blown black-out.

P.S. You're lucky that you have a 2-minute warning. I usually have only a few seconds to act.

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.
