Re: VV and laughing

From: Ted


Hi there, I just found out about VV and it's me! I have had episodes on and off for years, treated for anxiety, increased heart rate, pain in left shoulder, flushed feelings in head & arms, and yes nearly passing out when laughing. I see my doctor in two days and hope to get a proper referal. I'm thankful for this forum.
