Re: I was told I have vaso-vagal syncope but.....



I don't think that the nurse was suggesting you have a disease. Vaso vagal syncope only means a faint ~ and you did faint, which I guess is why they wrote it on your notes. If she had written V V Syndrome or something, I might say she'd been jumping the gun. They just like to sound technical! Try not to worry about it :)

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.
