Hi Janet

I'm from Scotland and like your Mum have been having a hard time getting diagnosed. I don't have blue lips when i pass out (I don't think) but it is probably lack of oxygen caused by the blood pooling. I have just found out that a hospital in Newcastle is the one that pioneered the Tilt Table Test so it is recognised in this country, but not seemingly by the many GP's and specialists around the country. There are other sites dedicated to this condition. Try a search. Thats what I did and I got so much info my Dr has now taken me seriously. Hope you find some results.

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.
