I also have chronic fatigue with the vasovagal. I was diagnosed last summer after extensive testing. I am only 26 years old and I am a nurse. I am tired most of the time and notice that i can sleep 10 hours wake up and still feel awful. Not to mention that most of the meds i have tried have not been very successful in treating this disorder. It is very frustrating to deal with this and many times family and friends do not realize the seriousness to this disorder. It was nice to read that somebody else is going through this too sometimes i feel so alone.

Hi I read your response and my symptoms are very similar to yours..I get a sick stomache (nausea) then a hot flash and I start sweating..I feel like I am going to faint and things become blurred. I get tingling in my extremities. I feel like when the heat gets out of my body and cools down from the sweating I start feeling better. I am 8 months pregnant and my midwife told me it was the high progesterone level. I am not so sure. I think it has to do with moving my bowels also. It mostly happens in tha am after breakfast. So far it has happened twice in one month. It is very scary when it is happening..I feel like I can't talk because I try to concentrate on feeling better that I can't stay in conversation. It happened to me today while getting my hair done. I was just sitting there fine and then bam it hit me.
