Re: need for bowel movment causing vaso vagal ?

From: AR


I am having alot of episodes similar to this, after a bowel movement I get so weak and feel like I am going to pass out. I have to lay down and this extreme weakness lasts for hours, what is that? Is that vaso-vagal? I am going to check my blood pressure when it happens again, Im sure it will be low. Anyone experience this? Thanks
