Re: Vasal Vagal Syndrome

From: ErikMylastname


Its kind of funny since this is my first time reading about this. I have had this my entire life and i have no clue why. I have no understanding of this and what causes it. In my case it happens because of pain ie. needle, and finger pricks. But there has been a few times when i woke up and i fainted in the bathroom. Now i have learned to establish an understanding of how i feel before i faint as to lessen my chances of falling on my face.Still even if i do get to the ground quick, as soon as my body goes into that state of shock i seize and my body starts an uncontrolable seizure that i am not aware of at all. I will just wake up with bruises. But as i said, i was suprised at all i have read because it pertains to me. If anyone has more details for me on why this occurs i'd be glad to hear it. Being 17 and having my whole life ahead of me i would like to have some detail on this so i wont feel so bad explaining it to others. Thank you.
