    Heatwave

    Hi thanks will look into cooling vests. So far heatwave has no end in sight but temperatures are dipping with cloud cover which helps.

    Heatwave

    Hi clicky 77, Poor you , Let's hope the neurologist has some ideas. It is very tough in this heat, I have found some help sipping Skratch hydration mix thru the day. I also keep a cushion at the foot of the bed so when I am symptomatic at night I can raise my legs and drink water too. I'm glad I'm not on my own with this. Hang in there.

    Heatwave

    Hi, I'm usually a reasonably managed presyncope person.Since the UK heatwave started it's like I've become hyper sensitive and the usual build up of light headedness to can't think straight to nausea, tremors to slurred speech then shaking and loss of speech must get to the floor has gone. Now it's sudden light headed and bang straight into slurred stuttering tremors shaking . This is a bit shocking to me despite increasing salt fluids etc.Anyone else had this ? Is this normal .I now have a large gallstone and consultant says this has an impact on it all.
  7. 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
  8. 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

    Pistol , Thanks for the input you are right but when I have good spells I tend to think it's not necessary .

    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
