I recently had a cerebral angiogram. All went well untill afterward. As the assistant was applying pressure to the femoral artery, I became queazy and dizzy. I was not in pain. I lost consciousness, bit my tongue and when I came to, two of the fingers on my right hand were numb and I had lost some of the strength of the right arm. The nurses said that I had a seizure and a TIA. The doctor thought I simply fainted from the pain. I don't usually faint and I wasn't in much pain. I don't really know if a vaso-vagal can produce these symtoms.
