Male Swooning

Greetings all,

Started as early as nine that I recall. Lived in the country and had fun being alone in the woods past out on my back waiting for something to take a bite out of me or for mobility to come back.

The issue was misdiagnosed as hypergylcemia and I was told to watch my suger. This persisted for years. Real bummer passing out at a party when you are trying to impress a woman.

At twenty-eight, after having already been diagnosed, tilted, doped and decided to go with it, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor - Accoustic Neuroma.

I just posted on the ANA blog a question if any others had this issue for the Vagus nerve is close to where the tumor was. Just courious.

Apologie in advance to any hypochondriacs that may be flipping out now.
