After reading through all these postings, I feel less crazy! I have been fainting all my life and it seems as I'm getting older its getting worse. I'm 33. Lately trips to the doctor trigger it, I'll all of the sudden start sweating, heart starts beating fast, have that feeling of I have to escape then I put my head down and usually it passes. I always feel very good once the episode passes or I come to after fainting. I once had 35 stictches in my head from fainting. I also feel these VV attacks along with IBS when I'm stressed, recently my doctor put me on Buspar, I don't think its doing much though. I almost fainted last night at the eye doctor. Blood, stress, diet, doctors and any kind of trauma trigger me. I'm tired of living like this, I always fear its going to happen and how embarassing it will be..I'm going to change my diet and see if that helps, can anyone please suggest what has worked for them? I really want to take control of this and stop being so fearful, I just want to be "normal" Thank you.
