Re: Athlete with VV-would appreciate encouragement



Rely on the doctor's advice and don't take things on this forum as sound medical advice. These are anectdotal experiences we all share. I agree with you when you say that hydration and nutrition are key issues, and if she's addicted to caffeine or not eating right they will be factors.

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.
