vaso vagal in washington DC  anyone else?



Hi my name is Suzanne and my husband has vaso vagal,it scares me to death whenever he has an episode. They have been occuring since he was six years old he is now 30. Doctors where never able to diagnos what he had when he was a child. His episodes went on untreated utill I met him 4 years ago and insisted on going to docters untill we found out what this was. His episodes generally only occur every year to 2 years, however three have happened since december 2000 and 2 of them where only 5 weeks apart.My husband used to smoke marijauna, his episodes would generally happen when he was stoned. He has since quit and his last episode was nowhere near as bad. In previous episodes he would vomit after wards. IWe will soon be going for the tilt table test seizures have already been ruled out.If anybody has any new info or just needs to talk please write back. Thanks so much for listening to my story. Best wishes with this beast!!!
