Hey, Joanie, I also have VV. It is very frustrating. I have some heart problems too and at one time thought that they were aggravating the VV. I have been assured by the doctors that there is no connection. However, I have found that if I eat anything with sulfites, it seems to bring on an attack. The worst culprits seem to be salad bars that use sulfites(potato white) to keep their lettuce fresh. Wine also contains sulfites in great quantities as do things like blue cheeses, etc. Try avoid them and see if it helps.
what is near syncope episode and what are the symptems?
I was diagnosed with Vaso depressor syncope in 1999. I experienced dizziness, increased pulse and fainting. Initially, it was thought that I was having anxiety attacks. Later, when I fainted during a tilt table test, I was diagnosed with VDS. I was told by my cardiologist and a Neurologist that salt would be beneficial. Since my blood pressure is normal, salt will elevate the blood pressure and lessen the likelihood of fainting before I can react to the initial dizziness. I was also prescribed 0.1 mg of Florinef. This is a beta blocker that has done WONDERS. I have gotten dizzy on occassion but haven't had a fainting episode since!
