It's been a life long problem.

From: DeAnn


I have just been diagnosed with VV at the age of 22 but have been having the episodes since the age of 2. I have been told that I've had everything from a heart disease to epilepsy. It's very frustrating. I can't keep a job because of the episodes and it also wears and tears on my relationships.Not to mentions the injuries I've sustained. Some of the meds the doctors have put me on has left me walking on a cane or drooling at the mouth. Now I'm on Toprol and was wondering what other meds other people are on for the VV. I just lost another job about a week ago which has cancelled my insurance again. Does anyone have any suggestions about the finanial difficulties? Also is anyone taking something for the anxiety too? Thanks for the help , any advise will help.
