My husband was diagnosed yesterday with Vaso Vagal. He ended up in the hospital after an attack in Boston on a business trip, this is the 3rd severe attack. He is now home and is scheduled to see our regular doctor in 2 days who will then send him to his cardiologist. What can I expect. They mentioned pulling his drivers license among other things. I thinkhe is more relieved than anything to know what it is. This is the 3rd severe attack and all the doctors before where stumped because of his high blood pressure. The only connection to the three attacks that we can find is that within three weeks before the attack his blood pressure medicine had been adjusted or changed completely. Can someone just let us know what to expect or give us some good questions that we need to ask. We are clueless. Thank you.
