Thank you for posting this article on the web. I just had this episode a few days ago. I thought, I was going to have a stroke. I was getting disoriented and dizzy-like. And I have mid-chest pain accompanied it. I was send to emergency room immidiately. The doctor gave me all the tests. It turns out I had a symptom call vaso-vagal. He gave me some anti-anxiety medicine. But the symtom occurs everyday for a week. Once it was so bad i had to check into the emergency room again. My blood pressure was going up and I felt pain in the gastro area. Finally, until I realize that this was a gastro pain and im not dying I felt very relief. It may have caused when i did deepstretching and I was laying down on the floor for a long time. And I quick stood up.
