Re: Vaso Depressor Syncope

From: Cristina Elliott


Lauren, I have recently been diagnosed with Vaso Vagal Syncope. I am 34 years-old and have 2 children. My worse episodes happen when I get out of bed. I haven't been given any medication yet, but am scheduled to see my PCP next week. Are you on any medication, and if so, does it seem to be helping?

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.
