Re: cause



I have been serching for an answer, to what i have always refered to as ' spell's', i have been i tears since i found this web site and i realized i am really not crazy, this is real! But i am so far from understanding this, i started having this since i was hit by a car while walking, my pelvis was fractured 13 places, i had 1 pin placed in my left hip. after going home my left leg lost its circulation and i had a thrombectomy, with a vena cava filter placment,. i have not had any thing like this before that time. i have been to all types of doctors, including a cardiologist, and they knew nothing! tomorrow i am having another surgery for a hernia repair, directly related to the accident and while speaking to the anesteliologist he said 'oh your vaso-vagal' .Can you belive that? so that is how i have started my search. why is thei happening, and has any one else had this due to trauma? please help me unmderstand.
