vasovagal pre-syncope

From: jen


i have had panic and anxiety disorder for almost a year now and i am pretty much in control of it (no meds!) Lately i have been having some other symptoms other then what i am use to;severe dizziness, severe nausea and ALMOST passing out. I have had stomach problems before i even knew i had the anxiety, i confronted my doctor about this and of course she blames it on the anxiety. She very recently ( 3days ago) told me i have VASOVAGAL PRE-SYNCOPE! almost the exact same symptoms , except for the almost passing out part...Anyways, my question is ...could my stomach problems be a cause of this? I read that other things could cause it, even stomach problems ...can anyone identify with me here? I am getting a catscan done and a loop recorder
