Re: Vasovagal reaction and dreamlike state

From: R.


I'm glad I found this board. I too experience a dream like state. My episodes follow this pattern: First there is the stimulus, usually medical related (often discussions relating to medical conditions). Next I start feeling a little warm and light headed. Then it's lights out. While unconscious, I dream. The best I can remember, they're not unlike my normal dreams. Which are very realistic (during them, afterward their a little weird), but I typically don't remember them. When I start coming back around, first I hear the people around me talking to me. I answer them, but I'm still in the dream. I then move into a dream like consciousness. I'm aware of my surroundings, but I'm still in a weird state. I feel a little confused at first. But then become re-orientated. Usuually, I feel weak and exhausted for a while. Usually an hour or so afterward.
