I have had vaso vagal for over four years. It took three years before this to discover what I had. first it was panic attacks, then hypoglecima. but when I ended up in the hospital via ambulance, the hospital decided it was time to take action. they sent me to a cardio. specialist. in 30 seconds, he told me what I possibly could have. Then with the tilt-table test, it confirmed that I (who was 32 at the time) had this horrible condition. I am on atenolol right now. I have had many attacks since then. it has been a life changing thing. But still doctors have no clue how it feels to have this condition unless they themselves have it. Some days I am not sure I am going to make it to wrk. other days I am not sure I even want to get out of bed. This condition sneaks up on you and even though you know at that moment~"oh no" you are never sure if your going to passout, get sick or both. I have had my pressure drop below 30/50. I have stopped breathing in different episodes, but every time I ask the doctor if this could be life threatening, he says no. Well, let him have this. because I feel I am dying each and everytime. thanks for reading.
