Vaso-Vagal Discussion

I have been trying to get info.



I have had a lot of health problems over the last few years, until recently. I was diagnosed with a hyperactive vagus nerve when I passed out while riding one of my horses. I was unconsious for 2 days, came close to needing surgery to relive pressure for the bleeding of my brain, it was a mess!! This happened about 6 months ago, since I have been on beta blockers and have gotten much more healthy, but am interested in finding a more natural balance. I am 5'8'' and was down to 110 lbs., now back up to 125 lbs. I was dizzy all the time, passed out constantly, I know that I need meds to maintain an active lifestyle, but the medication makes me feel like a dead head! Sometimes I feel like a bomb could go off a foot away from me and I would never know the difference! If anyone has any info. that can help point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!
