From: Carleen Aguilar


7 years ago I had a fainting spell. I developed exteme stomach cramping and felt the a bowell movement coming on. I passed out in the Rest Room. My husband was thought I was dead, because I was white as a gost, he called the paramedics. they told me that I had a Vaso-Vagal attach. In the emergency room I was told that this was a common occurance in the em. Some people are just proned to it and that it would probably happen to me again. Sure enough it did, 7 years later at a wedding. I did not eat lunch. At 4:00 I had appetizers and then my developed a sinus headach and evenually a stomach ache. About two hours later during dinner I felt a lot of gas pain, I was ice cold and I felt exhausted. I told my husband to take me home, when I stook up, he walked me out in to the lobby and I fainted. Shoult I have a neurological test? When I walk I always feel like I am going to fall.
