Mysterious reason for VV

From: Philippe



I have 16 years old and i have vaso-vagal syncope since I was child. My firsts fainting spells and nauseas have occurred when my father and the pediatrics has pulled the skin wich protects the "penis´head" to clean up it or to examinate. I have been able to do that only when i had have a certain disease in penis and, otherwise i couldn´t clean it, that would be worse, so i had obtained the "resistance" .

When I was boy, I have VV in other cases too, but they have ever had some relation of parts of body. For example: when the teacher have read a story of a cow wich have her tongue cut, i fainted.

Today, this sensibility persists only in a specific case: at school, every time that I learn the internal fisiology of the penis, i have nauseas and fainting spells.

Why do it happen?

Thanks for the attention.

Ps.: sorry if I comitted some mistakes: I´m brazilian and I´am learning English.
