I am a 45 yr old female and was diagnosed with vv 5 years ago.I had Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and after all my surgeries came VV. I like most of you get very dizzy and the room becomes black and i passout..lose all control of my bodily functions..and have to stay in bed for 3 days because the pain is so bad.My vascular surgeon suggests i try wearing a neck brace until this calms down..hahaha..does it ever calm down will i ever be so called normal again?? I am to the point now where i cannot work..the neck brace seems to help a bit but not much the head rushes are still there...i cannot leave my house for the first 3 hours in the morning due to diarrhea..i can't tell when these episodes are going to happen...i would just like something to be done so i can function some what "normally" again...i have a doc;s appointment coming up with my specialist and will let you know the results...thanks for listening
