I recently passed out at a restaurant after hitting my hand. When I hit the back of my hand it hurt really bad. The next thing I knew I was feeling dizzy and then passed out. My family got scared and lifted my head. They said I was blue and my eyes were rolled back. After that I started to convulse. When I woke up I felt okay except for feeling a little fuzzy and tired and very embarrased. The ambulance attendants said it was probably vagal response and not to worry. I have not seen anything about turning blue and going into convulsions. Does anyone have any information on this kind of a response? Deborah

About 3 years ago I started having fainting spells during blood draws, illness etc, also a myriad of fatigue/neuro symptoms. I saw a top rheumatologist who diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and suggested I get a tilt-table test (I didnt- I KNOW it'll make me faint- no fun!!) Today I fainted at the orthopedists after a steroid shot- he said "classic vaso-vagal reaction!"
But oddly enough, ever since these episodes began I have had the most incredible sexual experiences of my life, ultra euphoric, almost like an ecstatic religious experience sometimes. My partner for many months was worried because I would lose consciousness briefly at times and not respond to questions. I came out of it many times hearing him say "Are you OK?" Finally I had to tell him that I'm tired of him asking that every time I have an orgasm, so he's just accepted that that's the way things are now, and actually were both quite happy about it.
I have also had euphoric experiences outside the bedroom, even intense spiritual type and "stroke of genius" type, and also euphoria during fainting spells, although coming to is awful and I feel bad all day.
Anyone else had this not-so-bad side effect?
