I was just diagnosed with Vaso Vegal. In the past three years I have had between 7-10 episodes. Every time it happens I wake up in the middle of the night and have a fainting spell. In a five minute span I can have up to three fainting spells. I will wake up in the middle of the night with a hot sweat, and then pass out. I then get a cold chill. It will continue to happen. I end up in the ER and after they give me a couple bags of sodium chloride I am fine. As I am receiving the sodium chloride I will feel the spell come on with a hot sweat--I will not go unconcious--it will pass and then I will get a cold chill. The ER will do blood work and other test to find the problem, but they all send me home saying they do not know what it is. I just got a new family doctor who diagnosed me with VV. Now it is just determining which type I have.
