A competent family doctor should do and can refer you to a specialist to rule stuff out. - Then your left with VV and you need to do what you can to minimize episodes. There have been plenty of suggestions on this forum (staying hydrated; paying attention to the warning signs and get low so you don't fall; elevate you feet higher than your head when you feel one comoing on, etc. Sometimes the number of incidents declines for long periods of time.

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.
