Vaso Vagal

From: Lillian Filmer


my husband has had several episodes of vaso vagal -- all occurring without warning and with no reason that doctors have been able to find. His first was the day he was released from the hospital after an operation on his protate. Since then he has had at least six more, with no similar activity prior to his attacks. has been taken to hospital each time and had every test known to man with no answers. Any help would be appreciated. Prior to his protate operation, he had much pain from kidney stones, etc., so pain was not even considered a reason. Each episode was different. One after physical exertion, two while sitting and watching a baseball game, etc. Any answers out there?
