Re: Vaso-vagal, does anyone have these symptoms?



Hi, Having read your article about your suffering with VVS.I thought i would reply. I have just been diagnosed with VVS.After many irregular attacks.When it happens it is Very scary.I usually start to feel dizzy and have to sit down but it just gets worse.i start to feel sick and go very cold and sweaty rapid breathing and sometimes pass out completely.I have had just about every test going but they always come back normal.When i do come around usually after about 5 minutes. i feel very weak and drained.I have had approx 5 attacks in 2 yrs but 3 of those have been in the last 3 months.i recently suffered a nervous breakdown which possibly made the condition worse.This condition really sucks. Thanks for listening. Steve
