vaso vagal syncope

From: junkmailjesse @ yahoo . com


I have been researching this "vaso vagal syncope" for a few years now. I go from dentist to dentist; no one wants to treat me. Every time I'm given a shot, I get nautious, dizzy, sweat, and faint. Regardless if my feet are above my head. The last time, the dentist told me I had a seizure. When I woke up, I had no idea who they were, I was disoriented and felt very very sick. My heart skipped beats and beat hard. I became very thirsty and by the time I was feeling less dizzy, my novicane had worn off. I now have to have my wisdom teeth removed, 2 other teeth, 6 cavities filled, a crown and a root canal. I don't know what to do. According to all my dentists, I have the symptoms the most extreme any of them have ever seen. I'm hoping someone can help me or give me some insite. I literally feel like I'm dying when I"m in this situation and I'm aware that it is the #1 cause of death in the dentist chair. I'm scared and now have an extremem fear and phobia of needles and dentist. Any help would be appreciated.
