of all the other posts, mine seem most like yours. i have never passed out or fainted in my life. i end up on the floor, sweating buckets, with my heart beating loud and laborously, shaky and nauseas, and i basically feel like i am about to die right then and there. i too am aware of my surroundings but can't talk, and it lasts about 10 minutes or so, but then i am exhausted and have to rest for the rest of the day. (usually post hospital visit) i have not had any tests as of yet, and am skeptical of my diagnosis so far.

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.
