I am 64 and have suffered from vaso-vagel since I was 11 yrs old. That was the first time I had the worst stomach ache with nausea,felt like I needed to have a bm and the next thing I knew I begin to come to and the side of my face was skinned terribly I had fainted and my face slid down a masonary wall. Since then it has been so unpredictable I will feel terribly sick to my stomach and have to have a bm with tingling hands and feet I will sometimes have a narrowing of vision and sometimes I get hot. When I come to I am freezing and my teeth will chatter. I have been diagnosed as sezures I also have migraines so DR's said that caused them. Migraines have pretty much subsided but the VV hasn't I just had a VV two days ago. I had just had a Cardiac Cath and next day I was home and felt the stomach began to knot up and the next thing I knew my Granddaughter was calling my name and I was unable to speak but she did call 911. I had just had an episode the day after Christmas and the same EMT were on duty so they were familar with the problem I guess what I am saying is I pray for someone that is interested enough to study VV cause I don't want my precious GDaughter to have to be exposed to mine or possibly it happening to her.DR's used to say SURE !! when I descibed the episodes at least now there is a name for our problem. Good Luck Everyone and don't give up.
