Re: Vaso Vagal Episodes

From: John K


My V-V episodes occur only at night, but they are absolutely identical to your night time episode. I do pass out, turn grey, eyes rolled back, stop breathing, according to my wife. When I come to, I need a cold floor, cold breeze; sometimes, I am peaceful and relieved at this moment; other times the nausea/diarrhea continues. I have had sleep-EEG tests which showed nothing unusual in a normal sleep night.

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.
