have you heard of a condition called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) I too have many of the same symptoms and experienced my first attack with my 2 young children in the back of my car. It is so scary, you think you are going to die. I too have great anxiety that this will happen (and it has without warning) I still don;t have answers like treatment for this but I have docs. working on it. You may want to consult a doc. who ican do autonomic nervous testing, or tilt table testing to help diagnose.

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.
