  1. Help ! Anyone going thru this... I have vasovagal syncope reasonably managed.... Recently diagnosed with pebble size gallstone, causing nausea , pains aching under ribs and intermittent reflux, ibs. Now finding it is triggering pre syncope attacks and at night. Does anyone know if this is all related as I know vagus nerve function does affect bile production and digestion ?? Also ideas in dealing with it ?? Thanks
  2. Anyone out there manage day to day vasovagal episodes without the use of medications? I am curious to know if it is possible and How?

    Intermittent use Butchers Broom

    Thanks Ramatentesh, I have not noticed myself a difference in using butcher's broom but maybe you need to use it beyond 1 month to receive benefits or side effects.

    Blood pressure spikes

    Interesting, I wonder how much is affected by our diet when not on meds as related to taking meds. Have you any experience on that too ?

    Blood pressure spikes

    Hi do people get spikes for low blood pressure from just taking salt and some caffeine? I was supposed to try midodrine but was too scared because of the spikes and confused if I take tablets regularly would it make the spikes much worse .Anyone else worked thru this ? Many thanks

    Sweats dysautomnia or menopause?

    Thanks corina, Blood test would be one way to find out the cause .

    Symptomatic low nocturnal bp

    That's rough for you.No hadn't thought of sleep apnea . I don't know what my O2 levels are but had vaguey thought of buying a night mrasuring oxomiter.I generally lie down on my back first then roll to one side.
