I have had several episodes after eating at midday which I have submitted to the forum earlier. This time was different - came off my mountain bike and hurt my shoulder badly. The pain was pretty severe. my friends (one a doctor) said I stood up and then just crumpled to the ground. I only remember thinking I must have dozed off. In fat I was feeling okay at that time. They gave me plenty of fluid and I recovered after about an hour. Unlike previous episodes, there was no apparent warning to me. I don't know whether it was pain or dehydration, or a bit of both. For a change, the experience was not at all unpleasant, although that may have been because the injury was very painful.
If you suffer from VV, I suggest you be aware that a faint is possible with little warning. Don't stand up too soon Regards John L firstname.lastname@example.org
What treatment are you on and how successful would you describe it to be? I would appreciate as many responses and as much advice as you can give.
