I have had 3 such episodes of this syndrome. Starts with nausea and diaherrea (sp) and when I lean over the toilet bowl I feel like I'm going to faint and then the next thing I know I'm lying on the floor with a large bump on my head or a split lip, etc.

Lately, I have been under a lot of stress and I am starting to feel that same flutter between my breast bones like I might faint - do you think this condition is related to stress.
