SusanC I was never told about vasovagal in the past. Even as a child, I had several episodes of fainting and vomiting. As an adult, I still have these episodes. I had to have a tooth pulled about 6 yrs. ago. I explained to my dentist what happens to me and he just pushed it over and said I'll give you a 5mg volumn to take an hour before and gave me gas when I got there. Never had a problem. But, that doesn't solve a thing when no doctor diagnosis you. I am really upset that few doctors are educated themselves to educate us patients. I also had to look to the internet for answers and am very thankful to have found this site. Audrey
