I have been fighting the symptoms of vaso-vagal sycope going on 3 years,My family doctor has treated me for heart problems,treated me for low blood sugar,depression,stress,the've even said I was starting thru the change of life ,which I have also went thru a hystrectomy,they have said it was my colon,sending me for colon scopes ,all to no avail..The last attack I had i passed completly out ,turned cold and my lips turns white ,not including the injuries due to the fall itself..My question to you is how do I get a doctor to look at the possibility of it being vaso-vagal sycope ? After reading your article I am relieved to know that this is not all in my head and that there is hope in finding /treating this illness. Thank You Kimberly Schmitz e-mail address:
