Having read a number of comments about the little help from Doctors, I can only say that as soon as I saw a cardiologist, they were more than helpful. When I went back to the GP who had refered me, he had never heard of VV. This is the problem.

Before the cardiologist, I had been to see a neurologist who told me I was being silly and imagining the symptons.

I do my best to raise awareness of VV but I have still never found anyone else who has it (except here!).

Apparently there are a higher number of cases in Germany and Scandinavia.
