Re: can you stop breathing after you lose conciousness from a v. ...

From: Yes!! I did!!


I have had these episodes on four or five occasions in the last two years. The last one occurred in the hospital while I was undergoing a Hystogram for infertility testing. It was the same nausea, then blacking out. Only when I woke up, the doctor was holding my head back because I had a seizure and the nurse was massaging my chest because I had stopped breathing. It seems as though with each episode, the symptoms get worse.
