vasovegal disc.



i have suffered 3 episodes in my life, and just learned what it was when i crashed my 18 wheel truck in s carolina 2 weeks ago, my doctor says i can go back to work, but my company wont let me go back on the road without a prevention, and i have none so far. first was when i was 11 and i passed out standing up at prayer, second was coughing that brought it on a year ago from the flu, and this last episode was in my truck at 60 miles an hour. i am afraid of killing somebody if it happens again while im driving, and i cant get an appointment for a neurologist fr 2 months, thats also depressing cause im out of work. thankyou jason
