I am 24 and two weeks ago I was in a crowded, smoky bar. We had been standing for quite a while waiting to get drinks when I began to feel strange, became dizzy and Grey out. I did lose complete consciousness and for two days after was extremely shaky and nauseous. This Saturday I was in another bar (not nearly as crowded or smoky) when I suddenly became extremely hot. I moved to where it was cooler, and then suddenly passed out cold. I was helped up and proceeded towards my friends when it happened again. These last two pass outs came with out any warning signs. I did go to the doctor after both occurrences he is 99% sure I have VV. I am scheduled to see a Cardiologist and am wearing a Hoilter Monitor. I have never experienced anything like this before, it has just manifested. I am looking for someone who has had it onset in their 20's and passed out in crowded public places. I would like to know what kind of treatments you received. Thanks for reading my story.
