I can't believe I found this site! This stuff sounds exactly like me. I'm a 22 yr old female who started developing problems in Feb. One night, I woke up feeling really really dizzy, I broke into a sweat and felt like I had to use the bathroom right away. After peeing, I threw up, felt better, but jittery and went back to bed. The next day, late at night, I felt really hungry, but when I finally got food, I felt nauseas, my heart rate sky rockted, I started sweating, and shaking really badly. I felt I had to use the bathroom again. I vomited several times. This episode lasted for hours and hours. I felt like I was going to die and like my head was being pulled back. Eventually, I passed out. This happend again in less severe, but still intense form every day for the next week. Every time, the symptoms were the same - although I did not always throw up - and it always involved needing to use the bathroom and or food. Every time, I eventually reached an "end" were I knew it would all end soon because I was going to pass out. I began to notice after awhile that I would feel panicky (heartrate high, dizzy, etc) right before a bowel movement. And if I couldn't have the bowel movement (which started happening), I would go into a full attack. In April, I woke up in the middle of the night with extreme abdominal pain - it was gone by the next day but I was left with a burning stomach. I've been to the doctor a million times who is convinced this is all in my head since my blood tests came back normal and so did an upper GI. I'm going in for a lower GI soon, but it really sounds like I have VV. Who should I see about this? What can be done? I am going crazy with the increased heart rate every single time I have to use the bathroom. The rate at which I need to go has increased as well. What is the vagus nerve exactly? Please help!!!!
