Hi, Wendy. Thanks for your comment-no one responded to my post for some time so I just checked in today. The reason I checked in is because I had an episode on the highway with my 3 1/2 year old in the back seat - I didn't pass out, but had all the symptoms leading up to it-palpitations, sweating, shaking, dizziness, confusion, stomach cramps. Fortunately, a police officer was on the opposite side of the exit ramp and I was able to get him to keep an eye on me while I recovered and waited for my husband to come retrieve our child, so I could be assured he was safe. This really is a difficult disorder.

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.
