Re: Vaso Vagal attack when laying down?

From: Stella


Thank you for that info, although I'm sorry to hear you're going through this. I've been to the ER several times in my life for V-V attacks. I've never had a tilt table test although its been suggested to me. Going through a V-V is almost like going through a near death experience and I'm just afraid I may pass out on the tilt table! Any idea what provokes your attacks? In the past I'd get them from stomach cramps, migraines, fevers, menstrual cramps and now who know's why I got it at night. One of the strangest episodes of v-v attacks I've had was shortly after I took a new antibiotic last year. Strange, huh?
