Pregnancy makes it worse!

AntiSpam: orange


I am 5 and a half months pregnant and was diagnosed with having vaso-vagal faints about a year ago when i had sudden fainting attacks. Since the beginning of my pregnancy these have occured more often to the point i can no longer go out on my own for fear of fainting! I have been to see my gynae consultant and have been checked for high/low blood pressure, anaemia etc etc - the only thing they could find was a slightly low blood sugar so they sent me away telling me to eat more! Its so frustrating!
