If it happens again sit down or lay down right then. That is what I was told to do by ER doctor. Also when EMT's arrived at my home the first time, they had me sit and out my head between my kness to increase blood flow to head. When they were able to get me to my couch my BP was 80/50.

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.
