Re: neurocardiogenic syncope



i have a relative who we think has neurocardiogenic syncope. When she has an attack, she indicates that her heart races, and her face turns bright red. She said the overwhelming feeling is one of dizziness, like the whole room is spinning. The attacks have come on suddenly (within the last year) but she has learned to recognize the symptoms of an attack and go lay down. Recently, she has begun twitching while an attack is happeneing. However, according to one the web sites i've read, this is a different phenomenon than a seizure. This is what i know about it from my relative's account.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
