Vaso Vagal Attacks



I have been diagnosed with these attacks. I have had them for a few years before being diagnosed. I was told several times it was anxiety. I was given inderal to take. I took it for about 4 months. It helped initially. I had to go off the meds to repeat a test. I am finding now, that I don't feel any different from being on them. I am back to not feeling very well. Any suggestions of meds or anything else to help myself. I have tried increasing salts to increase the blood pressure. Since having these attacks, my blood pressure has been on the high side for me. Increasing the salt just wakes me up with the sweats and will also start an attack. Also during the day, I will get a nervouse feeling, which usually means an attack coming that night. Help me with any information, please. Thank you.
