vaso vagal response

From: Jessica


I am a 20 year old female who has been living wiht vaso vagal since i was 13 years old. Today while seated in class i has an episode. My cardiologists suggests that i drink plenty of Gatorade to keep my sodium levels high and to eat at lest one high sodium meal a day. I have passed out numerous times in the shower,standing at the teller at the bank, in school, and many other places. My doctor feels that there is nothing else to do besides to be put on a beta blocker which he is agisnt because i am so young.
