I'm 43 Ive had 3 vaso vagal responses that I remember. Yesterday I was getting an epidural for sciatic pain in my back, I started the prolfic sweating, nausia, ears ringing. I usually vomit but I didn't this time. they laid me down and ceased the procedure till I got back to normal.I did it once when giving blood and the vein blew a big purple, golf ball, sized knot came up on my arm. sweating, face white as a sheet, nausia,this had to happen at a work event so all my buddies were watching. Afterward they were like"We won't let that big mean nurse get you" thanks guys.I'm 6'1" 260lbs so its sort of funny. unless your the one on the floor!
