Re: This sounds right

I have been to the Emergency room for this 4 or 5 times now. It seems to me that most doctors aren't willing to go as far as to prognose this without the advice of a cardiologist. It has only been a aing.paramedic and cardiologists that have talked to me about this, Bottom line is your vagal slows down your heart rate causing your blood pressure to drop and we all know how traumatic that can be. The problem I see is that no one has any one certain thing that controls th VAGAL. It can be stressor stimulant induced, Its frustraing! I wish you the best but please don't ignore it and pretend you can control it. You will hurt yourself.

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.
