Re: Severe Abdominal Pain before passing out!

From: KS


Hi, I have the exact same problem. I have no idea what is caused from, but I have had different opions from doctors. One of them says that the vaso vagal nerve causes you to faint from to much pain, in other words after you reach you pain tolorence level you faint. Another doctor told me it was subdural seizures, and put me on Paxil CR 25mg, I have looked up subdural seizures and the symptoms do not match, and by the way the Paxil didn't work. I have had this proble since I was 11 yrs old. I would love it if someone had any help at all for this problem. I have gotten hurt on several occations from fainting from this problem. Sorry I couldn't help you with your problem, but I wanted to let you know you are not alone. If anyone knows anything about this then please HELP!! Thanks
