VV - Ischemic colitis

From: Linda


I have had vasovagal attacks since I was a teenager (now 47). On 3 occasions I was in such a low flow state that I ended up with ischemic colitis. I recently for the first time passed out while sitting eating in a restaurant - no warning. Am still going through tests. Interested to know if anyone has had the colitis related to passing out.
