From: susan yates


I am 27 yers old and have suffered with attacks now for 15 years.I live in England and was only diagnosed 4 years ago.I suffer around 3/4 attacks daily and can have around 8 attacks around my menstrual cycle.My condition has deteriorated each time I have had each of my 3 children.In England we do not have tilt table testing and I have no madical control for them.My typical episode starts with a few second warning then dizziness,I also feel as if I am going to have a nose bleed but never do.I then get tunnel vision and then I am coming round on the floor a few minutes later.I have seen the specialist who says all I can do is not stand too long,dont walk for too long ,dont get excited ,dont get depressed and dot over exert yourself and then sent away.Is there anyone who can give me more advice as this is now over taking my life and gradually ruining my self esteem.
