Re: My experiences with the Vasa Vagal Attacks.



Like you, I myself have been diagnosed with VV Snycope. It started right aroun my first menstruation. I had one when I was in 13 and again when I was 17. They did all kinds of tests including the tilt table and I passed out with in 5 minutes of the whole test. For me I feel as If I am about to throw up right when I black out. The attacks are usually brought on by extreme physical or emotional trama. I havent had an attack since but I had a few times where it felt like one was coming on. When I wake up from these attacks it is hard for me to see for a few seconds. I hate the attacks they are scary.~~Cassie Pratt---RockHill

Can you get VV from anything else expect from "panic attacks"?

From: Bambi


I am a 27 yr. old female that was just told I have VV. I am not afraid of needles, blood or anything to that matter. I am not depressed or really that stressed at work. I have had a 24 heart monitor, and an echo cardiogram and a stress test. My highest heart rate wearing the monitor was 133 bpp and the lowest was 47 bpm. When I had my stress test my doctor informed me that i have an irregular heart beat on the right side of the heart. I am currently taking Atentol two times a day. I just feel like they are just passing this off like i panic and i am depressed which is not the case. I always feel like i am going to vomit, i get light headed very easily and my heart flutters quite a bit. Can you get VV without having panic attacks or being depressed?

Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
