Vasovegal syncope

From: TXPX


I must say, I really find some comfort in reading some of your stories. I too suffer from VV "attacks". It has been on going for years now, and the same as most of you, the doctors say not much to do??!!?? CRAZY right? well just 2 days ago was the worst It happened 3 times, lucky I was rushed to the ER after the 1st and the 2nd & 3rd were both recored by the monitor!! My heart actually stopped for a minute. Well I am trying a pill that is a steriod and helps me retain water & salt. We'll see how it works. I am also drinking plenty of gatorade (sorry waterboy):) take care & good luck
