Vaso-Vagal Discussion

I found out very recently that I had the Vasa-Vagal Syndrome. After vomitting and on my way to the hospital I fainted three times ( I fainted on two occasions because of what the doctors had said to me! ). The doctors hooked me up to the heart monitoring device. The next day a nurse unwillingly implied that I could have a problem with my brain. I panicked so much that few seconds later I fainted four the fourth time.As I was hooked up to the machine they saw that my heart had almost stopped for 12 seconds and started beating again. I woke up and everything seemed normal. The next day, I went through all the tests that was deemed necessary. I had great results (EKG,EKO and etc). I did not even faint on the tilt test. I refused to take all the antidepression drugs and I have started REİKİ which really did wonders and my irregular heart beats after the incident completely disappeared. I had a stressful life for 15 years. I think my body was no longer able to cope with my emotional stress and discharged it all. Whenever I feel that I am going to faint I lie down, breath deeply and it goes away.
