Vaso-Vagal Response Syndrome - Symptoms

Date: 5/3/01
Time: 3:59:10 PM
Remote Name:


My daughter's ( 40yrs.old ) Dr. told her several years ago that she had V-V Syndrome. Her symptoms are as follows:- Sweating, VERY severe cramping, Hyperventilating, weakness/Semi-concious, vomiting and Diahrrea. These episodes usually last approximately 3 hours, involving all these symptoms. Her physician has told her it is V-V, but has offered no suggestions for relief, by way of medication etc. Just to add that there doesn/t seem to be any rhyme nor reason for the attacks. My question is - Is there anything that can be done ?
