My symptoms are somewhat different from others or at least more complicated. The first episode I had began with itching the palms of my hands started itching real bad and turned real red then the rest of my body started itching and turned red, I ran bath water and took benedryl thinking that would help and at that time I had to go to the bathroom. While using the bathroom I got extremely nauseated, before my daughter could bring me something to throw up in I started throwing up all over the bathroom. They finally helped me to the bed and called my mother because my children were there my themselves. I felt like I had to go back to the bathroom so they helped my back in there I was so weak at that point I could not even hold myself up. My hands had started drawing and I could not speak. My mother got there and helped me back from the bathroom to the bed they helped to get me dressed and called the ambulance. By the time I arrived at the hospital my blood pressure was 50/40 and I was severely dehydrated. I was kept in the hospital for two days and given nine bags of fluid and the Dr. said he beleived I had vaso-vagal, I have had one episode since then although not as severe because I knew the symptoms when they came on and got to the hospital before my hands started drawing and I could not speak. With all the other things I have read my symptoms do not seem to vaso-vagal. I need suggestions if anyone has any.
