Two years ago I fainted during mid-night mass xmas eve- I wanted to step out and get some air snce I felt hot, dizzy, and nautious. Unfortunatley I dint make it, so I blacked out split my chin and below my waist in the most uncomfortable spot u can imagine! Went though cat-scans, blood tests and nothing turned up. After that I had mini spells while sitting, but that happened just 3times. The I blacked out during the summer, freaked my cousin out, and decided I had to go get checked out. Went through the blood tests, heart exams- nothing-- all negative, until the tilt table test. The first 30 minutes I was ok, but as soon as i was injected with caffeine, i lasted 4 minutes. It felt as though my heart was going to jump out of my chest. I couldnt breathe, it was awful. So there i was diagnosed with vaso-vagel. Will I become worse? Who knows. I'm 31 years old, where this came from is beyond me. I do have to increase my salt and gatorade intake- just hope I don't put on weight! After reading though what others have been going through, my heart goes out to all of them.
