Joanne, I usually experience some stomach cramping, loose stools, and then the weakness, profuse sweating and losing conciousnes for a short period of time. I have only been alone once when it happened, I think it bothers my family more than me. It is anxiety provoking!
I too was able to watch my temperature go up and down with standing vs. sitting. It was a lot worse before diagnosis and treatment. I still get super hot at night when no pro-amatine in system and still do bad in hot temperatures. You are the first person I have heard about temp rising. I thought it was just me. Thanks, S.A.M.
Hey, I just found this board - it's really interesting to read other people's experiences. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or comments about VV episodes relating to contact with the eye. Both my dad and I pass out during glaucoma tests, or if we try to use contacts - for a long time I thought it was my panic disorder, but even if I go in feeling perfectly calm, I wind up on the floor. Finally my old eye doc suggested it was a VV reaction.
Just yesterday I was seeing a surgeon about Lasik surgery (you know, no more glasses) and I passed out twice during the corneal thickness test. I'd taken my anti-panic xanax and was breathing deeply and feeling pretty relaxed, but that thing touched my eye and POW. Now the doc's telling me this means I can't have the Lasik, because it would be a really bad idea to pass out while there are lasers in your eye.
Has anyone else experienced this kind of VV reaction? Have you found any solution? I feel like such an idiot, collapsing during eye exams!
