Hi 22, trouble is with this thing as the symptoms present as associated with just about anything yu can think of. I sense the desperation behind your words especially when it effects your working life. My 13 year old daughter died 4 years ago with hypertropic cardiomyopothy. Her death was triggered by physical exercise, she had syptoms identical to mine, was told what you were, but have this uderlying condition. I do not have this condition. My post 'tilt test' will give you an overview on my siutaion and I will pass on my thoughts over the years and what I know. First could you consider and respond to these questions. Besides the obvious fears you have over the condition are you a self concious person? Are symptons triggered at the thought of embarrasement in a public place or important event? I suspect they maybe getting worse over the anxiety associated with the symtoms themself - is that the case?

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
