I used to suffer from severe bouts of Vaso. Then I was informed that drinking Gatorade would alleviate my problem. I have been drinking gatorade for many months now. The drinking of gatorade eliminates the passing out but not the diarrhea.

Should we wear medic alert bracelets?

From: sjm


After passing out several times in public with abulances called and many questions regarding how much alcohol I have had and what drugs I have taken or if I am pregnant. After having a conversation with the EMT that results in me saying no, no, no, no, no. I am thinking of getting a medic alert bracelet or a sign in my car that they can read that says that I have vaso-vagal nerve syndrome and I will recover. No need to go to the ER. Please call my family. Have any of you tried this?
