I must say I agree with you. However, I have been experiencing anxiety recently as my condition is much worse and I've been collapsing in what could be termed to be dangerous situations e.g. when using stairs and I'm scared by it. I bought some self help books for anxiety problems. I was absolutely shocked to hear that 'fainting (vasovagal emotional attack)' is a major symptom of panic attacks'. Which is total rubbish from my point of view! My current situation means it is the other way around - the vasovagal causing the worry.

Thanks for the reply - it is good to know other people pass out without feeling anxious/very emotional beforehand - I've never had that, despite being told I must do.
