Re: vasovagal reaction?



Vasa-Vagal is not life threating. That's what all my doctors told me. It sounds that it maybe a light case. I have benn know to have passed out as many as 5 times a day. It started when I was 15. I was told on of the causes was that I have low blood pressure. I still have symtoms from time to time, but I have not passed out for 5 years, do to a pacemarker. The events you discribe sound like the ones my mother described to my doctors. I sisn't remember. At first the doctors thought I had epalepisy(not sure of spelling), but the test turned out fine. the test used for vasa-vagal is called a tilt table test. I saw also told that some people have been known to grow out of it. Right now that's what I hoping for. I hope this helped
