Re: vagal response to pain



I am trying to learn all that I can about the vaso-vagal response. First had it happen about 2 months ago while having blood taken (on the third stick) Second time was two weeks ago, while having shunt inserted into my hand before surgery. Felt as though I was going to pass out at the gym yesterday while lifting weights. What is going on?! What health conditions could be causing this all of a sudden? Please help.
