Over the last 6 months I have intermittently experienced noticeable arrhythmias-sudden tachycardia then it makes me cough and back to sinus rhythm. Twice recently I have had sudden abdominal pain, fell to the ground because it was so bad and I felt like I was passing out. Once I did pass out, woke up very slowly and feeling disconnected from my body. The other time I didn't lose consciousness but was in that twilight zone and my ears buzzed loudly, then I got quite nauseous and vomited a lot-and I never get nauseous.Both times were in the evening and I dragged myself to bed and woke up OK. I'm afraid to tell my doctor because she always thinks everything is just stress, but I have two small children at home and what if I don't wake up?
From: Fiona age 36-
After age 32, I had 4 major Vaso-Vagal syncope episodes- each time it was the day of my period: included extreme cramps, nausia, vomiting, over-heating, dizziness, unable to process thoughts or speak, loss of bowel movements, then complete black-out with spasms in arms and am"OUT" not sure how long for. Repeated again after an emergency procedure for a thought of ectopic pregnancy- Dr. inserted lamineria and I went into a episode about 1 hour later---full on episode low BP, high heart rate, vomiting, diarhea,cramps and sweating.
My gynecologist put me on a low-estrogen pill for 2 years- I had no symptoms--now pregnant and they are back! Now Pregnant and again this week had a little episode with severe onset of sweating, nausia, then drank water- took yoga posture for deep breathing in a crouch- then the symptoms passed. Was dehydrated after helping friend for about 1 hour, in car park in bright sun after small car accident. +++ Problem is the Dr's think It could relate to the dilation of my cervix and trigger Vaso Vagal- so they are not sure if I can go thru a natural birth-and are suggesting c-section. On top of it have a arachanoid cyst in my Thoracic 12- Lumbar 1, and this concerns them with added pressure from baby- I am 3 month along in what seems to be a healthy pregnancy- any advice- where to research- what medications?Have great OBGYN open to learn more alternatives!

Unfortunately it isn't this way for men. After being diagnosed with VDS, I was prescribed Atenolol (a beta blocker) and experience mild impotence!! Imaging being a single 28 year old guy and not being able to perform to potential when needed. I have since switched to 0.1mg of Florinef and the Atenolol affects have worn of in THAT aspect. However, Atenolol WILL AFFECT your short term memory.
