From: firefighterchick


I was told I had a vasa vagal episode three days ago. It begin with a rapid heart beat of 198 and a blood pressure of 185/88 then severs chest paind and I was turning purple and very dizzy. After nitro in the ambulance and 4 baby aspirins followed a series of tests and heart stress test 5 hours later they had no idea what was wrong called it a vasa vagal and sent me home. Does this sound like VVS? Help
