Vaso Vagal Syndrome



I have too experienced this syndome about 6 times in the last 12 years. The last I had yesterday when I was standing in line at Subway to get a salad. All of the sudden I felt I couldnt' get a good breath and kept yawning trying to get adequate air, then I got hot and took off my coat and then I felt I needed to sit down. Once I did, I broke out into this drenching sweat all over. I had a bad stress headache the night before and have had a dull headache since this happened and feel very drained and dark under my eyes. I have no idea what brought it on this time but it is very scary and uncontollable. In the past it has occurred after I took pain meds or certain meds that have lowered my blood pressure. I natuarally have low blodd pressure and I think once I take meds that lower it even more, then this syndome occurs.
