Actually I had no idea I was about to faint. I am not vaso-vagal, or at least I had never fainted before like this. I felt woozy and dizzy, and thought I might vomit, but didn't think I was going to blackout and fall off the table.

I was just wondering if anyone has heard of inactivity being a cause of vv? My step daughter was just diagnosed at age 12, and my husband heard tis was a cause. She doesn't live with us, but we know that she leads a sedintary life. Any comments would be appreciated.
