Hi. I am 55 years old and diagnosed with UC and Vasovagal Syncope (VS). I want to know if someone experienced this:Everytime UC flares the VS get activated too. It is embarrassing because I am using the toilet when the UC and VS attacks. Thank God my husband is there to prevent me from hitting the floor. My husband says I loose conscience for about a minute and I am not breathing. When I regain conscience it is difficult to breath and it is like I was running a marathon. I am completely disoriented (do not know where I am, who I am, etc.) Take me several minutes to be me again. After this I can not walk and I am son tired that need to stay in bed for 24 hours and even more. I am having this attacks at least once a month.I was using Toprol and Asacol, but nothing happens. Now I am on Florinef and Asacol. I have taken prednisone and a lot of medications including alternative medicine. Last week I had another attack.My doctor asked me to quit my job and I agreed. Have a tilt test, week holter, pressure holter, coloscopy, barium enema, sestamibi test, and a lot of cardiac tests. I am also seeing an electrophysiologist. My life is upside down. When visiting places I need to look for restrooms and my husband, my mom or my son must go in with me in case I faint. Changed my diet but attacks are there. My Internist is very worried because of fainting and he warned me to be cautious when driving or working. He was the one ho asked me to quit my job.I am a Certified Fraud Examiner and stress is high at work.Anyone with this situation? I'll be waiting for your response.God bless you all.
