Hi. Last fall I was also diagnosed with this irritating disorder. Pretty much the best idea is to increase your salt intake. Most diet products, diet apple juice for example, have higher doses of sodium than regular drinks. They're also diet so yay. I went to see a specialist in Boston last December and that was what she told me. You can also take salt tablets but that might be a bit of over kill. Also try not to sit up or lay down too fast. And always have something on hand to drink (not water).

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.
