Hi, my husband is 35 years old, 6 yrs ago, he had what the doctors called was a vaso vagal response and wrecked his car. after cardic workup and a nerological work up, also had a tilt table, it was determined that it was a freak thing and he had stimulated his vagus nerve. well, he has had 4 episodes this year and this only happens when he is laughing hysterically . What do you think? Chris

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
