Re: vaso-vagal resulting in asystole?

OMG...just found this site. The same thing happened to me dear. Had all the tests performed,even the cardiac cathederization. ALL CLEAR! Great news right? NOPE! 20 min. in recovery, then the family came in. BOOM! There I pulse! For nearly one minute I was a non-citizen if ya know what I mean. I felt the pain at the site, then travel to my chest HUGE PAIN then my head HUGGGGE pain, I heard the nurse say No pulse, I can't get a pulse. They ruled out epilepsy( supposedly my grandpa had it) now I believed he suffered from V.V. also. After reading these accounts I can pinpoint mini attacks that I thought might be pointing towards something else. My goodness it sure makes daily life quite the challenge.Like a monster in the dark. PS- anxiety is something that I haven't been able to completely saddle either. Good luck to you, to me and to all of us. God Bless and Care for us. :)
