I've always had these with severe bowel movement. I never went to the doctor about them until I had one at work. It scared the dickens out of people at work. They usually happened at home.
From what my doctor told me: bowel movement stimulates or un-stimulates your vaso-vagel nerve. In turn, this causes your heart to slow down. In turn, this causes your blood pressure to drop. When your blood pressure drops, physical symptoms manifest themselves. These are profuse sweating, nausea, deathly paleness, dizziness, etc.. These symptoms scare the dickens out of people.
When the bowel movement stops, the nerve returns to normal, the heart speeds up, the symptoms disappear and you feel better.
Basically, my doctor's advice was to stay home if I had diarrhea and never be constipated. Constipation causes nasty cramping.
After a very scary dizzy spell and extreme weekness I was told I had a Vaso Vagal Reaction. What is it ,have other fainting spells been related, what can I do to stop this from happening again?
