From: Shirley


I started passing out at age 16 after a horse fell on me. I had sever headaches and a problem hearing for a few weeks. I occasionally became dizzy after that but never passed out. When I was older and became pregnant I passed out very easily. I always seemed to see this comming on and could get my babies down before I fell. Then while working at a hospital I was eating lunch and lost my eyesight, became very dizzy and passed out. I was off work for a couple of days then everything was fine. About a year later I started getting dizzy often went to tne doctors but nothing was found was put on medication for my nerves. I had several episodes of falling and getting dizzy for years . Then in 1978 I was working and I became very dizzy walked out into the hallway and passed out. The staff put me in bed my B/P was 88/40 heartrate was 48 I was very diaphoretic (Sweaty). These eposides are much more frequent and in April 2006 I had to quit my job . I am a nurse and while doing trac care I almost passed out on my resident. I went for a heart stress test and while they were putting my I V in I had a vagal nerve attack My heart went into Junctional rythm and the last I heard was my heart rate was 53 Junctional with poor B/P output then I passed completey out. I have had another episode since then at home. It is very scarry eventhough I am a Christian. I am going for an ENG and Audiogram this month. I have a history of arthritis, high cholesterol, H- Plori
