i was diagnosed with nmh (which sounds like another name for vaso-vagal) in september, after an awful TTT experience. ever since i was a really small child i couldn't stand without getting incredibly sick. i also would have my jaw lock on me and would start to shake. diet has a lot to do with your bodies reactions. i have a severe allergy to milk products, which seems to be common among those with NMH. i also find that my attacks were more common when i consumed sugar and caffeine. what was your friend diagnosed with exactly. i am still learning about this, but a wonderful place i found on the web, was fainters united. please email me if you have any questions.
