vaso-vagal reaction while seated

From: chappyjean


Does anyone have a vaso-vagal reaction while in a seated position for a long time? While driving for a long time or seated at a movie, I will start having a feeling that my clothes are really tight around my middle and then all the other symptoms proceed from there. If I keep my clothes unbuttoned/unzipped around my waist and if I recline the seat slightly, it is much better. Anyone else experience this?
