Are vasovagal syncope and baroreflex failure the same thing?

I have been undiagnosed for 2 years with symptoms similar to baroreflex failure and vasovagal syncope.

Treatment with florinef for over a year has not made a difference.
I found information on this website about baroreflex failure and called my cardiologist to let him know that my symptoms match this condition.

He told me that vasovagal syncope and baroreflex failure are the same thing?

I don't have issues upon standing, all my episodes occur when I am sitting for periods of time ranging from a few minutes to a few hours.
