Iam 27 and have been experiencing episodes of head pain and pressure when I laugh, cough, sneeze or anything that is strenuous. On one occasion I blacked out during laughing and on another occassion I blacked out from coughing. I was told that I had vaso vagal but Iam still confused that it can be caused by pain, but my question is whats causing the pain to make the vaso vagal happen? I have had tons of tests done in which everything has come up negative, so I continually search for an answer.

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.
