Vaso-Vagal Discussion



I have heard that there are treatments. What types of treatments are there? I have had this for years and informed physicians of it and I have never been told to seek treatment or been given treatment. I was in 5th grade the first time this happened. It has happened at least 10 times since and I am now 30. When it has happened I am told that seizure like symptoms such as eyes rolling and tongue biting or jaw clenching have occured. I was at the Dr's office last week and they were trying to draw blood and they could never get any. Right in the middle of it I went totally out and they said I was actually snoring. While I was out I felt so peaceful but as soon as I regained consciousness I was totally exhausted and sweaty. I could barely walk and I didn't feel better for about 8 hours after that. Any suggestions?
