I have just come from a cardiologists. He diagnosed me with vagal. I have been having fainting spells since I was 6. I am now 50 and over a period of time I have had about 12. They told me at first it was my heart. After many tests and alot of money this is what they have come up with. I personally have never heard of it but all the symptoms are mine. I passed out at a restaurant and they called the squad! What a waste of time. I spend 3 days in the hospital. I got no rest. I felt worse when I came out then when I went in. Anyways, they never really told me how to prevent it. Said I may never have an episode again. Imagine that!
