Vaso-Vagal syndrome

From: Barbara Lewitt


I have had several experiences with the syndrome but all have been in hospitals. Each time someone I care about has either declared that they wanted to die...or were close to death or explained their accident in detail to me I have experienced all of the symptoms described. Blood rushes fom my head...feel dizzy, nausea, and have begun to black-out on more than one occasion....After discussing this with my doctor he decided that it must be related to my sympathetic attitude since it has never happened in any other manner.
