Re: Unemployed due to vaso vagul-HELP!

I know exactly how you feel. I have had some form of this illness now for many years, it got worse after my daughter was born 5 years ago. None of my doctors knew what was wrong with me until I saw a cardiologist who diagnosed it as vaso depresor syncope. I have always been sensitive to heat, and now I know why!!!

I was where you are at a few years ago. It was all I could do to drag myself into work everyday. I came on days when I should n't have. I was dizzy everyday, talking around me was muffled, I just felt weird!!! Then I started taking Celexa everyday and it has helped. I still have episodes and strange symptoms, blurry vision, missing vision, shaking and rythemic jerking, so my doctor is sending me to a syncope specialist. I can't get in until November, but that is all this doctor does.

So we will see what he has to say. Good luck to you. I know how you feel. I am 39 years old.
