Re: passing out on a airplane-Response



It happened to me just last month- I see other comments on this forum about the fact when you are in a plane your blood will pool in your legs, which can cause these episodes. On most flights they seem to keep the fasten seat belt sign on most of the time. Don't be afraid to get up and move around anyway! Heal thyself!

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
