Re: vaso vagal



Hello! It's 2004 now, but I just found your post. I do hope you have found relief with your situation.

Every time I have a VV episode, I feel as though I am dying, whatever that is supposed to feel like. I frequently have been lying on the floor, after fainting, asking my GOD for mercy & peace, because I just knew "this was it". I have never had anyone else understand this, including my Doctors. They just say it is anxiety brought on by my spells. However, I know differently. I call them "near death" experiences, and only those of us that have gone through this will understand. I certainly hope this has helped you in some way. I know it helps just to talk about it and know you are not alone. Warmest wishes to you!
