I have exactly what you had, I was diagnosed with vvs but I feel it's more of an orthostatic intolerance in me than that(actually they are all the same thing, VVS,NMI, OI, NCS ect..). I often have no stimulis to precipitate an episode, one factor that I do have is I am standing when it occurs. I do have it happen when sitting but it happens more with standing. It sounds like your case was OI .

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
