Good question: Dystonia just means a defect in tone. If there is some form of vascular tone problem, you may have risk for heart attack or stroke. Start with a good internist. He can then determine if another specialist is necessary.

No, really?: Where did you hear about vegetative-vascular dystonia? This is a bit of cockamamie nonsense that arose from VERY old-fashioned mostly Russian pseudo-medicine. The term is, in fact, meaningless. Anyone who tries to hoodwink you that it exists, let alone should be treated, is either a quack or an ancient Eastern European crackpot.

How to treat vegetative-vascular dystonia?

Hot/cold showers: This diagnosis is popular in the eastern europe; in the us it is called vaso-vagal dysfunction (or syncope). Regular aerobic exercise, good hydration, regular meals, and enough sleep can help. A treatment popular in the eastern europe involves taking a hot shower and at the end making the water cold for 2 minutes. This does condition your blood vessels, although there are no controlled studies.
