Hi Ana, Your symptoms sound exactly like mine. It does feel good to know that there are others out there with the same problem. I always thought I was just a wimp because I would pass out so much. Now at 38 they have diagnosed me with vaso vagal syncope. My heart stops too. My doctor is suggesting I get a pace maker as a possible treatment. Has anyone else had such a treatment suggested to them? Is there anyone out there that got a pacemaker for this problem? I am still trying to decide if I want to get the pacemaker. My syncope has also gotten progressively worse so that now I am really concerned when I have an episode.
