Hi 22, trouble is with this thing as the symptoms present as associated with just about anything you 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 hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Her death was triggered by physical exercise, she had symptoms identical to mine, was told what you were, but have this underlying condition. I do not have this condition. My post 'tilt test' will give you an overview on my situation 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-conscious person? Are symptoms triggered at the thought of embarrassment in a public place or important event? I suspect they maybe getting worse over the anxiety associated with the symptoms 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.
