Re: Vaso vegal episodes

From: Olin Thompson


I was sitting at a desk in my office when I began the freezing, sweating. I called the front desk and said I was ill. The front desk said they were calling the paramedics. When they arrived my blood sugar was only 53, my blood pressure was 70/50 and I later had what one described as a bowel explosion. I filled bed pans three times. They were violent. I still have no idea what triggered the event. I went back to work two days after being let ouf of the hospital. I felt fine. My doctor wasn't forthcoming on the reasons. Anyone know anything?
