It certainly sounds like you are having VV episodes. But do let the Doctors run the tests that they need , to rule out other things. There are many medications used for VVS, beta blockers, Zoloft, vagal nerve depressors. My symptoms of VVS came crashing in after the Flu.. I find that during the winter months my symptoms are not as extreem. Do keep up on your fluids, increase your salt intake if your able, try Magnesium and potassium supplemants. Have you had a tilt table test yet? That will determine if its VVS or something alse like arryhthmia causing the problem. Good luck and keep us posted how your doing.
