vasal response



I had an episode may15,2004. It always starts with a cough or strangling attack. The next thing I know I'm getting up off the floor. When it happens it leaves me very nervous and weak. I am 54 years old and it just started last year. I saw bright lights last year. This last episode I was feeling very tired and I sat down and somehow coughed to keepfrom strangling. It made me so very afraid. I fear one day it will happen and I'll not be able to come back. Do you know of anyone else with this reaction. If so e-mail me back.
