Re: Vaso Vagal

From: Tricia


Hi, My son was diagnosed with vaso vagal over a year ago. To date he still does not have a normal life. He is 21 yrs old, hardly goes out, does not hold a job and constantly thinks he is going to die. It started out of the blue with him drinking lots of water and feeling light headed and then he could barely stand up. They did tilt table tests and he passed out almost right away. He is now on florinef. The doctors do not do anything and say they don't know why he has this condition and maybe it will go away as strangelly as it came. Before this he was very active, going to the gym, working , enjoying lots of friends. Now they say he should not work out at the gym. WHAT IS GOING ON? We have no help yet he has his life on hold. I would appreciate any comments on this before I go crazy with worry!!
