My daugher, (17 yrs. old); has had fainting spells on 3 different occasions. First time, took her to Dr.; he said it was rare occurence and that it was her intestines pressing on nerve that caused the fainting. Second time she fainted was at hospital(food poisoning). This 3rd time, which was only Sat. night, she fainted 3 times. She had a bad virus or flu; very sick with vomiting, headache, chills and fever. She also could not get her bowels to move. This takes me back to the first time when Dr. said it was intestines pressing on nerve. Am in process of looking into this farther with our Dr. to see if there could be any other factors relating to these fainting spells. Should you have any other information available would greatly appreciate you sending it on to me. Find your "Vaso-Vagal Discussion" very informative. Thank you so kindly.

Re: V-V Experiences



Hi I read your comment about getting car sick as a child, I also go car sick. I have also been told by coworkers during the day that my face had turned beat red. I've only been diagnosed with VV for 6 weeks via tilt table test. This is a nightmare, how do you cope. Thanks for any help!
