ow I have reviewed several of these quite informative discussions. I wish to add my own observations Apparently, I have been a victim of this Syndrome for most of my life; I will be 60 this year. Recently, I had two very similar episodes that led me to think that I had a significant problem. I had Cavier at dinner parties,and had thae same response: I had to lay down or I would definitely faint. Not only this, I became cold and clamy and started to have cold sweats. Also, I felt like an attack od severe diarreah. These two episodes occurred within two months time. Therefore, I thought that this bisarre feeling was the result of the same problem . The PROBLEM IS, WHAT IS THAT PROBLEM? Apparently, I have Vaso-vagel Syndrome. It has been triggered, in the past, by seafood--cavier, and also by sharp shocking pain. A stubbed toe is an excellent example of a diasterous response to a simple minor painful event. It is also an intersesting observation that I too can make myself sneeze by looking into strong sun light. One of the other coorespondants had also identified this situation.
