Vaso-Vagal Incident



Until afew weeks ago I had never in my sixty-three years had a Vaso-Vagal incident. I ate an ordianry breakfast at a restaurant one morning, then went home to work on my computer. While at the computer I got nauseated, then dizzy, then passed out. My Dr. ordered an MRI with contrast that showed no problem with my brain. He called it a Vaso-Vagal reaction, but couldn't tell me anything more specific.
