I am a 46 year old female. Three years ago I started having vaso-vagal respones about one week before my period. After 5 months of these episodes I had a stroke and continued to have vaso-vagal responses, but with no regularity. I had open heart surgery one year after the stroke for a patent ductus. For over two years I had not had any more episodes until last week it started again.

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.
