please reply-vvs

From: Reut


hello. im 21 years old. i've recently been diagnosed with vaso vagal. my attacks accure after stessfull events or sights (even watching blood on tv). i feel numness in my arms, i sweat, feel im about to faint, sit down, see black, wake up and remember it all. i've been wanting to know if vvs is a psychological problem, i was told that my body is dealing with mental things through physical eppisodes, if so, why wasn't i told to see a shrynk? and why don't i feel bad or anything that would make me wanna go see a psychologist? i read allot of people here writing they have blurred vision. i was diagnosed with convergence insufficiancy - my eyes cant focus, and was wondering if anyone else have that, or know if that can be caused by vvs? i am also very concerned that i can get other illnesses as a cause of vvs. how do i know? what can i do to prevent it? please email me to: i wish you all to have only days in which you feel good and healthy.
