The driving part is what scares me the most. I also have had episodes while driving, usually brought on by a near accident, or seeing another car involved in one. The best course of action I have found is to realize the symptoms are coming on, and find a place to pull over immediately. Even if the episode is not a full blown faint, you will be better off and so will the general public. Learning to live with possibly the best defense we have.

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.
