Re: vasovagal without fainting

From: rr


I have been diagnosed with vaso depressor sycope (same thing) for 2 years now. I have never actually passed out. I have been close, but never have. I take Celexa once a day and it has done wonders for me. I still have attacks, but not everyday like I did. I am 39 years old. I have had the illness much much longer, but it finally got diagnosed 2 years ago. I still suffer. I still have episodes where I shake and jerk and feel dizzy and my eye sight is blurry. I have even had an episode where I could not feel my arms and legs. THat was very very scarry. I get extremely tired right before an attack I mean TIRED!!!

Good luck to you.
