Vaso-Vagal Syncopy

From: MS


I visited a doctor after passing out on a plane on a work related trip. I was ordered to go by my boss if I was ever going to fly again. I've experienced waking up in the middle of the night sweating, bowl issues, fainting, exhausted, thinking I was going to die - the whole thing. The doctor that I visited said I had vaso-vagal syncopy, but the PHD that I worked for explained it to me like this. I had body fluids that shifted within my system that affected my central nervous system. I did remember that I was up extra early that morning -feeling f I had a cold glass of orange juice that morning and I felt it in my stomach - somehow I believe that affected me during the flight. I remember even to this day (about 5 years later)how I felt before, during and after those several episodes and have watched what I put in my system in the early morning, late evening or under great exhaustion. I have not had an experience like that again.

And finally, Ryce the 17 year old, good luck with the vampire story. I wonder how many mentally challenged people bought it?
