Re: 9 Vaso Vagal Scares With my 5 Year Old



hello. I have had vaso drepressor syncope for a long time now. I can understand your frustrations. I am 39 now, but have had this illness for many, many years. It started out simple little things then got worse. (not to scare you). I think that I am severely inflicted with this illness. I see a cardiologist and the neurologist to me was a waste of time since it is not epilepsy (but do have it checked for you child if you have not). My cariologist is concerned about me, because he hasn't seen anyone like me. I am going to see a specialist in Toledo, Ohio in November (the earliest appointment I could get. It took 6 months to see him). I don't think doctors know anything about vaso depressor sycope (vaso vagal). My honest opinion! The doctor that I will be seeing eventually does research in the area. I am hoping that finally I will get to see the right person after years of struggle. Good luck to you. I know how frustrating this illness is. Keep looking.
