Vasa Vagal Syncope



This past year , my husband suffered a vasa vagal Synope and end up passed out on the stairs.When we got to the hospital he suffered three more. It got to the point where he flat lined for up to 17 seconds and scared the crap at of me cause there was nothing I could do. We he came back he was wondering what was going on and why the doctors were on top of him pushing on his chest.He had this happen a year before but he thought it was food posioning and when my son was born he had one in the delivery room. After a week in the ICU the doctors decided that the only option was to place a pace marker in him. My husband is in the Navy and now they want to kick him out because of this. He has not had a eposoide since but I'm still scared that the pace marker will not work. I have noticed that most peoples are triggered by stress. My husband said it only happens when he works out or on a diet. if anyone else has more information please let me know!
