you remind me a lot of myself. i'm a 27 year old female, have one child and am currently pregnant with my second. pre-pregnancy weight was 100 lbs., and i, too work out regularly. i get the same symptoms as you, but i don't actually faint. i "collapse" with a pounding heart, major sweat, shaky, and weakness. but am concious, i just can't talk barely while it's happening and it takes me a little longer to recover- like 10 mins. and then, like you, i am exhauted the rest of the day and have to sleep. i still don't understand the diagnosis of having "vasovagal episodes" . it is still unclear to me whether it is a CAUSE or an EFFECT!!! good luck!
