the Doctor is probably right as far as Vesa-vegal goes. But you should still seek a second opinion. I myself suffer from these "episodes". Unfortunatley no one can really pinpoint a "trigger" For me it has happen usually around a hospital/doctor setting. but after years of research, I am noe seeing a cardiologist who believes dehydration has a lot to do with it. Last time it happened to me I spent the night in the emergency room and it happened 2 more times that evening. I was "lucky" enough to be in good care and hooked up to a heart monitor, just to find out my heart stopped for a min. when I come to it is really uncomfotable, lot of vomiting, weakness, I can't be moved for awhile. well I hope this may be of some help in some way, be sure to drink your GATORADE!!!!!!!!
