Re: VASO VAGAL- bathroom dizziness ?

From: AR


Hi, Ive been having similar episodes. After a bowel movement every now and then, I get this extreme weakness and have to lay down. This horrible weakness, feels like I am going to pass out, lasts for hours. Is this vaso-vagal? Is is a tilt test that determines? Thanks
