Thanks for your reply. Dad says he doesn't have the stomach cramps or nausea that I do with my VV, but he feels very lightheaded just before it happens. Mom says he gets clammy and loses all color - I always do, too. He had a full physical a few months ago, and his blood pressure was normal, as was everything else. Dad hasn't been tested for VV specifically, but it's just been assumed that these are VV episodes. He thinks he may have been slightly dehydrated each time. Very scary episodes, but at least he doesn't get the incredible sickness - and the panic that comes with it - with his attacks.
