Yes, I have experienced panic attacks for many years and now I seem to have these Vaso-vagal episodes. I tend to think there is a link as many people have experienced both. Unlike you, I have fainted on many occasions, and actually hurt myself and scared my young children. I am trying to learn as much as I can, as some Dr.'s tend to feel its just something you have to live with. Good Luck.

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.
