Vaso-vagal faint linked to clinical depression

I have for a number of years (approx 10) suffered depression. This has been diagnosed as biochemical (how I'm not sure) I do suffer occasionally from severe pain in the abdomen, followed by fainting (the stopping hurts). I have been checked out (camera up camera down) I'm told that the faints are vaso-vagal???? They appeared at 37 years of age, along with depression which has never left. I am a hearing aid audiologist by profession, and would be interested to know if anybody has had a similar experience. The medical profession don't seem that interested over here in England. Thankyou for the interesting site.
