I experienced a vasovagel for the first time last night.I had just finished eating an enjoyable meal with friends when an onset of severe lower abdominal pain occured I needed to go to the toilet but passed out still sitting in the chair following experiencing all the known symptoms of vv.I had 2 bouts of severe diarrhoea when I recovered then my pain settled somewhat. I was taken to the local hospital for assessment. I am to have a colonoscopy next week.I cannot find any informative information on vasovagel and would appreciate same/ Thank you.
