Re: Vaso vagal panic

From: trailrunner


You have a much magnified version of my occaisional experience: a sensation in the gastrointestinal track will trigger a "funny" (Usually lower) heartrate and a feeling of lightheadedness, sometimes even before I am aware of the GI sensation. A minute later, I pass the gas or burp and have a miraculous reset. Crisis averted. But it is very annoying and a major reason why I have not had a colonoscopy--afraid I'd flatline on the table! It helps to know your triggers and GI symptoms are mine.

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.
