Re: vaso-vagal episode

From: Vasa Vagal trip wire! Follow up.


I went to the the ER again today because I was determined that I was not normal. I knew I had some form of Vasa Vagal Sincope. That was diagnosed by the doctor. Problem was I waned to know why! I had them run a cat scan. Praise God everything came back normal and my sinuses were clear. I am also please to say I had a fantastic physician that not only did what I asked, he allowed me to make some choices wnd when he smiled and gave me an antihistamine and a motion sickness pill I took them gladly. I went to the CT scan and when I git back my ears had stopped ringing, my head was clear, I was a little groggy but. . I wasn't dizzy. He did some motion tests and sent me hhome with Vertigo. Now I dont mean tovsimplify I still have Vasa Vagal! But the symptoms of me passing out are almost identical to a dizzy spell. The Vertigo is just another trip wire!anyhow ,I hope I am at a balance here that I can live with. I can work on the Vagal, I can controll ther vertigo. Thing is when I get dizzy I panic, (probably because I think I'm Vagaling, my heart races, my blood pressure goes through the roof, and when my vagal kicks in and if Im relaxed position or sleeping when this happens my BP drops too low and I pass out. At least this is how I feel about it. We'll see. Thank you for this site. It probably helped me more than anone just being able to talk about this.
