Vasovagal response to Shellfish?

From: mlk


Has anyone ever experienced the vasovagal response to eating shellfish? I have been diagnosed with VVS (vasovagal syncope) and had allergy tests done to see if I had food allergy-- but alas, I do not.

Still, EVERY TIME I eat shrimp, lobster and other shellfish -- I have a vasovagal reaction.

I'm interested to find out if this has happened to anyone else.
