Re: You have the same syptoms?

From: Rose E.


You said these symtoms are the same as yours. I am only 13, I've never experience the nausea or diziness or severe sweating until today. I had my ears repierced and a few minutes later I started breaking out in a sweat, with nausea. I started losing my sight, making me dizzy - it looked like everything had a glare and it wasn't blurry, but I don't know how to say. I've had a pacemaker since I was a year. (It was replaced when I was almost 8.) I can't ever remember anything but holding my breath when I feel pain, except passing out once when I was eight when my brother punched me in the back. (We later found out my pacemaker's wire was broken and they replaced it.) It was so strange today. I thought I was going to pass out or die. I am aware that my vaso-vagal syncope may change as I get older. I thought it was going away, since I barely hold my breath anymore, opposed to how I used to hold it at least once a day when I was little. How old are you and what do you do for your symptoms? Are you able to lead a normal life?
