VV syncope

From: ZeldumZeen


This is an update of my story which was posted 1/10/06. As I said in my last letter, my "event" began in July. I was off on medical in August and returned to work the first week in September. On my first day back at work, I fainted three times-- broke my finger and ripped out the entire nail in the process. My company put me back on medical leave (again) for safety reasons. My cardiologist increased the dosage on the beta-blockers again but I still have bad days. I see him in a few weeks and I am sure he'll increase the dosage again. I'm too afraid to drive so my husband drives me. It sure is frustrating when you feel helpless and not in control. I hope everyone in this forum sees better days.
