Vaso Vagal

From: Caroline`


I have suffered with Vaso Vagal for approx 15 years I am 40 years old, there is no pattern to these attacks sometimes once a year sometimes once every 18 months, it normally happens when I go to the toilet and I am overcome with pain and have an out of control feeling, overwhelmed and frightened, I sweat hot and cold and have to lie on my side on a cold floor preferably, the sound of any type is almost umbearable, quiet helps and knowing someone is there but not overpowering, and then suddenly as soon as it has come it leaves....It is so weird and I thought I was alone in this weird phenomenon, I have a normal life have 2 beautiful boys and life is great....why they come who knows????
