vaso vagal



I was doing some things in preparation for a dinner in memory of my husband on the first anniversary of his death.I got this odd feeling, with a little nausea,and had to sit down.My legs did not want to go but I had no problem moving them.I took my blood pressure a few minutes later and it was 94/64.I waited a while and took it again.Same result. I went a little later the same day to my doctor and my pressure was 170/80,which is slightly higher than usual. All week my pressure has been in this range. Today the doctor suggested that this may have been vaso vagal.Does it sound like it?
