vasovagal Attack?

Remote Name:


I'm 34 and I had CT scan, EEG, blood, Tilt Table and urine test done...everything was fine.

I rarely have these attacks but the fear of having another one is overwhelming.

A little background:

Ten years ago got my blood work done with no food for 24 hours...nurse asked me if I was ok right after...I was just fine...I got up run a flight of stairs and I felt very hot and I hardly made it to the car where these feelings began

Another time:

I had a fever for 3 days...I was laying down when I was scared that the fever wasn't going away...I started to cry and got up and bang...same feeling...went to the hospital and they told me I was dehydrated and they needed an x-ray...I had to stand up for it...bang once again...same feeling

Another time:

My godson fell and hit his head on the fridge and it seemed that he was in a mom started to freak out...shouting that the baby was going to die...I started to get scared and once again...down to the floor.

Another time:

I was working out hard with weights and my brother kicked me and hit my finger and the pain was too much...started to get too hot...the feeling came over me once again until I vomited and then the feeling went away.

Another time:

I got home from the gym from a very hard workout with weights and got out of the shower and again the feeling started...I got down on the ground as quickly as I could and the feeling went way.

Another time:

I awoke up in the middle of the night...felt sick to my to the washroom to vomit...not enough time to get there...feeling of weakness along with all the other feelings took over...vomited just liquid...I believe I had a fever that night as well

All of these events were all under stress but the first one after the blood work, which is the one that I have no explanation for.

The other's may have an explanation. I hope I gave enough background of my problem

I am taking rivotril .5mg X3 per day and tried mega antidepressants but the tolerance is a problem.

I am seeing a doctor now but he is not quite sure what these weird attacks the way I get the "normal" panic attacks once an while

Could all this be a Vasovagal attack?
