Re: I was told I had a vaso vagal incident.

From: Reyzl


Hi Rick,

I know how scary VV episodes can feel. I get faint with injuries, blood, needles, etc. I had something very similar happen to me several years ago where I fainted after I ate breakfast. I think for me sometimes, sugar has the opposite effect to what I would expect and just makes the episode worse.

It sounds like you got checked out thoroughly by your doctor. I would try not to worry too much about this. As you say, this was the first time it ever happened to you. Most people will faint at some point in their life ~ it doesn't necessarily mean you are sick. You may never faint again! If it starts happening more and more then look into it but for now you're probably best not dwelling on it too much. Take care, Reyzl.
