Amen! I have lived with vaso vagal for 22 years and I, too was injured when I was too embarrassed to ask for help. I believe that it is the fault of the client, not the staff of the doctor to recognize the symptoms and react properly. In my experience (and it seems to be the consensus from my reading here) we all have enough warning to stop, drop, and roll to our sides.

i recently have been going to a cardiologist , for the same symptoms, to try to find out what is wrong with me. For the past two years i have been having "episodes" of the same nature. I almost fall down or sometimes fall down when i laugh or get emotionally excited. If i'm startled or if i say something defensive to another my knees buckle underneath me. I can have these attacks at anytime, sitting, standing, lyingdown.When i do have one i know it is about to happen and it is apparent to my wife also.During the time it is happening i lose all control of my body,i can't move or talk until it is over. they usually only last thirty seconds or so. My doctor has still to tell me what it is that i have. the tilt table test proved negative.I just today returned the heart monitor i was to wear for two weeks. the monitor captured two episodes, one post tense the other during, in which my heart rate dropped twenty five to thirty beats/ seconds.
