I am an old lady compared to you but wanted you to know that I also experience a near VV episode after having my eyes dilated several years ago. At the time the doctor said it was a vaso vagal thing but as I hadn't had other episodes around the same time and I just put it out of my mind. As mentioned before there are many different triggers and you can often stop yourself from a full faint by recognizing the symptons. You can't stop it from some things obviously - a reaction to something - but you can minimize the full faints. People have mentioned various techniques they've tried in this forum. I also have resisted taking medication because I am afraid the cure might be worse than the symptons, but folks have to make this call for themselves.
