Just diagnosed with Vagal Reaction

From: the_fainting_violet


I was diagnosed Sunday night by an emergency room physician. My follow up appoinment is tomorrow with my primary.

Sunday was my second episode in as many months. All I can deduce for a cause is being emotionally overwhelmed. The first time occured when I was speaking with an elder in my church about situations in my personal life. The second time (Sunday) I was relaxing at a restaurant with friends and we were talking about the horrible situation some friends of ours were in.

So I all I can think, is that these episodes are caused by stress. Great. How am I going to get away from stress?

But, it is nice to know there are others who deal with this too. I am not alone!

thanks for listening
