Vaso-Vagal Event



I experienced this event on an airplane last week. There was a Dr. on board who said I was having a vaso-vagal response. I had just finished drinking a high carb drink. I was comfortable and drowsing in my seat. Not anxious. Became very hot, broke out into a total body sweat, light nausia, thought I was going to faint. Flight attendants applied ice packs and gave me oxygen. Dr. came foward. Pluse was normal. I never totally lost consienceness. Very strange. Nothing like an anxiety attack. I have had them years ago.
