Re: Vasovagal Syncope

From: Glenn Dicus


I'm not a doctor.

It is my impression from my own experience is that the feinting is caused by low blood pressure. Common sense to me says that low blood pressure can be caused not only by low heart rates but also by thin blood or large unrestricted arteries or any combination of these. So, it may be that their are other contributing factors other than heart rate that the doctor is not considering.

Again, this is just from my limited experience with this problem.

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.
