This sight was very helpful with finding out more about Vasovagal. I recently had an episode at the doctor's office. I was there to have a few facial moles removed. Everything was fine with the proceedure and then all of a sudden after the doctor and nurse had left and I was holding my bandage I began to feel sick to my stomach, light headed and very clammy all over. The nurse had to hold me on the table to keep me from falling off because I had fainted. This had happened once before when I was flying. Agian everything was fine, I had taken a nap and then I woke up sweating and nausiated. I went walking to the restroom and fainted in the aile. Not only were both times very embarrassing but also scary. Especially the second time because I don't know what might bring it on. Please feel free to e-mail me if anyone has futher information about these episodes.
