Re: First time V-V (Thought it was a heart attack)

Kevin, we could have done without the sexual innuendos. To make light of this problem is degrading to those of us that really suffer from it. Sometimes when your oxygen is cut-off, perhaps by your "big yawn", your vaso-vagal nerve is stimulated to the point you may feel sexually aroused. You are blessed that you have that sensation, I suppose. Most of us that have this think we are dying when it happens. Perhaps you could use counseling for your repressed feelings, along with medical help for your vaso-vagal prob, if that's what it truly is. Wishing you the best, a true vaso-vagal sufferer.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
