Re: vaso vegal symtoms

It does sound like vasovagal syncope to me, even though you aren't actually fainting. I do actually pass out, but everything else sounds similar. I get hot flashes, sweaty & clamy, nausea, short of breath, then I pass out. When I come to, I usually have to go to the bathroom ( quickly!) and often throw up. It's also called neurocardiogenic syncope - so you might look that up too in your research.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
