Re: syndrome with sickness?



Yes I have experienced the same thing all the time, I do believe it is associated with VV although the doctors cant seem to find out why or what to do, the only thing I have found helpful is if I start to feel that way at all start drinking gatorade it helps out alot for some reason. My doctor also said that salt tablets taken daily can help this. I know its tuff!!My spells have actually got better here lately I am 28 and have had VV since I was 2 years old I just didnt know it. I have seen at least 8 doctors about this, they best result I have had is taking Sectral 200 mg once a day and drink alot of water and gatorade and eat alot of salt on my food. Good Luck , let me know if I can help !!

YUP.. Happens to me all the time. Dentist, surgery..anything like that. Everyone always told me I was a big baby or was having a panic attack. Well, it happened today at a doctors office. I was there with a friend. Stomach felt sick, thinking it was like a flu stomach thing. Queasiness set in and then that intense heat and profusely sweating. Ringing in the ears and couldn't hear anything and my eyes were foggy. I had to put my head down and afterward the doctor that was checking my friend was more concerned about me. Said I was too pale and she could see the sweat . She proceeded to take my pulse and it was a low 48! She actually told me that I had one of these episodes. Confused me because I didn't know what one was until I came here tonight. I was just recently diagnosed with tachycardia. Im so confused at this point. I was always so active and now im dead tired. I'm only 35 and 119lbs at 5'4" but the blood pressure is lower than my 11 year old. I dont know anymore. Im calling my doctor again. I just recently started a beta blocker as well. Im glad to know that this isn't just in my head. Take care...
