I am 44 years old and have been suffering from these episodes since I was 18. I have been diagnosed as having a hiatus hernia which affects the vagus nerve and causes these episodes. I start feeling dizzy, can't seem to get enough air, develop a crushing feeling in my chest, and sometimes angina, and then I black out - usually for a few seconds. This is a most distressing condition - but I have found that as long as I keep my acidity under control, I have fewer episodes. I'm not sure if this a hereditary problem since my sister has exactly the same problem. I would be interested to know if anybody else has vaso vagal episodes related to a hiatus hernia?
