Re: vaso vagal syndrome

From: Paul


At the very earliest signs of dizziness which you feel might escalate to a fainting spell, lay on your back and elevate your legs as far above your head as possible. Basically, lay next to a wall and use the wall to support your elevated legs. I do this on a regular basis and it will keep you from fainting if you do it quick enough.

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.
