I'm 52 years old and was diagnosed last year with vasal vasal syncope, with panic attacks. I try to manage it by diet and making sure I get enough sleep. I take 30mg propanol and 10mg citrapram. I have piled on 2 stone in weight and lost a lot of the fitness I used to have. I take the citrapram for the sweating and although it helps, it's still a problem. I am dreading the summer. I am so sensitive to heat changes. I have played this down with family, friends and colleagues as I find it really difficult to explain to them what it is. I am so pleased to have found this forum, I am not alone with this.
