From: George, 19 year-old male
Hello, I am a 19 year old asian male, on the skinny side, and with borderline low blood pressure. I first fainted about ~4-5 years ago after waking up early in the morning and running to the bathroom to urinate. Apparently I passed out on the way back to my bedroom.
The second time was about 3 years ago, when I suddenly started experience stomach cramps (possible from food poisoning) and passed out during class. Apparently, I was shaking.
The third time happened about 3 months ago, again, from food poisoning.
The fourth and fifth time happened just recently in a span of two days due to stomach pain caused by an inflammed appendix, happening both the night before and after surgery.
The kicker is that I have gone through a tilt-table test and the results came back negative. One doctor said that these episodes only seem to happen when I have stomach pain, and since I did not have any during the test, no episodes were induced.
Has anyone else been diagnosed with Vaso-Vagal, yet have tested negative to the tilt table? After visiting this forum, it is kind of a relief after seeing my range of fainting stimuli is quite narrow.
