Vaso-Vagal Syncope

I am writing in hopes of finding some info and help with my problem. I have suffered fainting spells since I was 16. I am now 42 and had an epesode this past weekend. It was the worst one I have ever had. After just about every test they can think of, I am still no further in finding an answer than I was when the Air Force released me because of it. All I have been told is that it is Vaso-Vago and I have been on Toprol XL 200 mg for the last year. If there is anything else I can add, please let me know. Thank you
