Vaso-vagal syndrome

AntiSpam: orange
From: Brenda F


It all started when i was about 8 years old. My fainting attacks were caused by either an asthma attack,exhaustion, extreme heat outside, trauma to my body or surgery. I have fainted at least 12 times since i was 8. My fainting spells start with the dizziness, then go to black outs, then i wake up vomiting, then cold chills ans sweats, diaherrea followed by complete exhaustion and uncontrollable shakes. Then i sleep for a few hours and wake with headaches. It sounds like most people on here suffer from some of the same symptoms. I am home from work today, because i put gas in my truck this morning and almost fainted on way into the gas station to pay for my gas. does anyone know some links where i can read up more on this syndrome? sincerely, Bren... please email me at
