From: S.P. Yesterday, June 6, was the first time I have even
heard of this (V-V). I found out about it after the emt's were called to
my job to see what my problem was. It was awful and it is hard to explain
to people what actually happened. I was in the bathroon and in the middle
of doing "my thing" my stomache felt that something was going to
burst out. It was almost like a leg cramp in my stomache. Well, when
I tried to stand up I felt all the blood rush from my head and I began to panic.
I made it out of the bathroom and the next thing I know the EMT's are there
taking my blood pressure! I began to feeling better soon but I went to the
ER anyway. All of my tests came out normal. I still wanted to know
more about this (V-V) After reading your treatment remedy, I wanted to let you
know that I have been on 50mg of Zoloft a day for about 2 years now.?!
Please let me know how you do.

Yes, I have had two or three. Two major ones were afere I had eaten both currey and had white wine but I have had both many times since without a V-V response. My episodes were similar to yours. Began with stomach ache and I got very hot. I had repeated, in fact, almost continual diarrhea for a long period of time, until I think my entire bowel was empty. In between bouts of diarrhea I laid on the bathroom floor,. weak and extremely diaphoretic (dripping with perspiration, and I am a person who never sweats, even if excercising in hot weather. I just overheat and get red-faced and nauseous).. Once this was over, of course I went home. I was probably pretty weak, don't remember. A short time later, after resting, I felt fine. My first episode was when I was in my twenties, the second, in my thirties. I have since had minor episodes, but never the extreme like these two memorable ones. I am now 58. I am an RN and gressed that these were V-V responses. My MD friends agreed. Sorry yours is so frequent and troublesome. Best think I can suggest is to keep a diary of absolutely everything you had eaten and had to drink just before the attack. This means finding out every spice that was used, every wine, etc. Eventually some common denominator may show up. Best of luck to you. Barbara i
