i was recently diagnosed as having a vaso vagal attack. i didn't faint but had to lie down, i was incapable of any movement and my skin felt numb, my speech was also slurred and i had some shaking in my left arm. i was told that all the color had left my face and i was put on oxygen for just under 2 hours. my blood pressure was very low so was my pulse. i ended up in the and didn't see a doctor until 3 hrs after the first symptoms and by this time my b/p had risen back up. it took me about 2 hours to regain the use of my muscles and to be able to speak clearly and sit up. does this sound like vaso vagal??? i'm 30 yrs old.
