Re: Diagnosed with Vaso-Vagal Syndrome

From: LH


This is unbelievable how similar our episodes happen. Just 3 weeks ago I had gone in a dept. store to shop just after eating a burito from Taco Bell. I had not been in there even 20 minutes when I started feeling very ill and like my stomach was in a severe cramp. I hurried to the restroom to have what I thought was a regular BM and didn't even have time to get my head down. I fainted off the toilet face forward onto a concrete floor. I have still got bruises and 2 black eyes from the incident. These episodes do not happen to me very often but when they do, I hardly have any time before I am already unconscious. This scares me to death not knowing when or where it will happen again.
