I think I have it

AntiSpam: orange
From: Marian Strauss


Seems to come on when I am sitting, usually with someone else, and we are talking to each other. Then I will feel like I am fainting, perspire and feel nauseous. After that I recover although I still feel funny for a couple of minutes. Sometimes I think it happens more often when I am tired. Often I will yawn just before or after. It is scary bcause I am always afraid it will happen when I am driving. My doctor says not to worry as I get a warning, but I don't really because it happens to fast. It has also occured when I am eating, and once when sitting before the computer. I took a tilt table test. did not feel faint until they administered nitro glycerin at the end, and then I quickly passed out.
