Vaso Vagal

From: Brian


I was looking through my old military records and they had put a note on it that said I was "Vaso Vagal Shock Prone". I never really knew what that was but I always passed out when I was around a hospital. I have also passed out in Biology class in college when we were on the subject of diseases. I can handle going to the dentist and receiving shots but can not handle even being in a hospital.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
