vasa vagal syncope

From: Ashley L


Yesterday while driving I passed out behind the wheel of my car. I awoke in a field,not knowing where I was. Later I went to the doctor and was told I had this disorder. I am terrified of driving now because IM not sure if this will happen again and next time i might not be so lucky. My only warning signs were pains in my stomache. Do you know what i can do?
