I have fainted 4 times in the last 2 years and have been going to the doctors for being tired all the time. I have also passed out a few times before that due to seeing blood, etc, when I was younger. I am 25 and a vegetarian and the doctors kept telling me to eat meat. I started taking a vitamin but I have passed out since then. I do get chilled frequently and it's hard to get warm again. The last time I fainted was a week ago at a concert and I was taken to the ER. They reported me to the DMV for passing out so now I don't have a license which makes it hard to get to the doctors appointments. I went to a cardiologist who said I might have vaso-vagal. My neurologist appointment isn't for a month cause he is so booked which means no driving. Did this happen to anyone else? What's the procedure to drive again? I know it's serious not to drive due to passing out but will I be able to drive again if I don't go on medication? I was told to increase salt and water and to shift positions often. I am scheduled for a echocardiogram and tilt test. I would like to know why I feel bad but it's a little scary. Thanks for your replies.
