I didn't know severe hangovers were related to V-V. I suffer from the same problem, so needless to say, I haven't tied one on in 2 or so years. Any time I'm invited out for a drink I decline with some lame excuse. I keep beer and wine in the house, but drink sparingly at dinnertime. I'd say that I miss my partying ways, but it's just not worth the horrible 2 - 3 day hangover afterwords.

Re: dizzy spells   (vaso-vagel)?



Jessie, my son is an athlete who is going through these same symptoms without totally passing out. Usually participating in athletics. He feels it coming on but is helpless to stop it. The symptoms are generally tired feeling followed by profuse sweating, pale clammy looking skin, nausea, then vomiting and then fatigue. He has competed through the symptoms but never passed out with maybe one exception, but obviously his performance was affected. Please contact me
