Just Diagnosed

From: Amy Gavin


I have just been informed that I suffer from Vaso Vagal attacks after almost two years of suffering all the symptoms such as fainting, tunnel vision and like many sufferers I feel that I lose complete control of all bodliy function. I was at fisrt fobbed off and made to feel that I was completley wasting their time and was in fact prescribed prozac patted on the head and told to see how I went !!.

However I have also been experiencing uncontrollable shaking of my arms and legs but there is no lack of consciousness so the doctor has ruled out any type of fit or seizure and has just fobbed me with off with this is also related to VV Has anyone else had any experience of this kind ?
