I am 43 years old, perfect health and just had my first experience with VV on 6/18/01. I experienced difficulty breathing, dizziness, chest pains and numbness in my left shoulder and upper arm. I was checked out at the hospital and they found nothing but a very healthy middle aged guy. I have an appt. for followup on 7/3/01. This is a great site and gives me alot of info on something I had never heard of before. Thanks
