This is amazing and encouraging. I have had several severe (to me) VV reactions inthe last 12 years but have JUST now been properly (?) diagnosed by a Dr. who as reported here, just really sluffed it off. My reactions are only when someone, usually in a medical visit, touches me in any way. Sometimes it does not happen. It has happened with a routine physical body press, a knee-reflex tap, even being fitted for contacts. I also have a rather intense feear of needles, but have not had a reaction to them. When I pass out I have HORRIBLE halucinations, as if my "life is passing before my eyes." Now the more I go to the Dr. the more I feel anxiety of it happening, so much that I warn the Dr. to expect it. It is a TERRIBLY unpleasant experience.

I have not read all of thes postings yet but I intend to. Does anyone relate to these symptoms? I am a very healthy 30 year old male with normal b.pressure, really normal everything.
