I have experienced fainting immediately following vomiting. The first time was when I was airsick on a 6 hour flight across Canada. I would start to throw up, then passed out over and over. They took me off the plane in Toronto before I reached my destination . The hospital I was taken to by ambulance gave me intravenous solutions, I felt better , but was given no explanation as to the cause of my odd fainting reaction. Just recently I had a "flu " or something with nausea resulting in vomiting and fainting each time. After about 6 hours of this and some bruises etc.from fainting the first time from a sitting position, after which I made sure I was lying down so I could not fall too far. Since I had bitten my tongue on the last time I wondered if I was having some kind of seizuir, so went to the hospital. They gave me anti-nausea drugs and intravenous fluids and for the first time heard the doctor said I probably just has a vaso vagal response causing the fainting. I have not yet seen him in his office but was not given any advice as to any way to avoid this from happening again if I am nauseous for some reason. It certainly is a scary experience so would certainly like to find out more about this . Has anyone been told of a way to avert this from happening?
