I'm new here. Like many of the posts I have read I had NO IDEA until 2 days ago that other people are going through the same things as me. It makes me feel better. I'm 35 now and I would guess I was around 8 or 9 when I had my first blackout. Over the years I would have them periodically. Sometimes going a year or two without and other times having a few in a year. Always seems to be a physical trigger. Hitting my finger or stubbing my toe. Then last week giving blood for a routine physical it happened in the doctors office. This is how I found out about vaso-vagal. I did the tilt table test a couple days ago and did not pass out. Does anyone else think that part of our problem is our emotional response to an event? I say this becauase I have had physical injuries that hurt much worse than some of the things that cause me to pass out. I did not pass out when I broke my ankle but I did when I stubbed my toe? Sometimes it seems the more I worry about something the more likely I am to pass out.
