Headaches accompany vaso-vagal episodes

From: Bill


I can tell when I am going to have a day of vaso-vagal episodes. Sometimes I am awakened early in the morning by a need to go to the bathroom which is normal then I go back to bed. But when I am up at this point I have a bad headache. I can tell that later this day when I do finally get up I will have vaso-vagal attacks. I have never passed out during one but I do get light headed and when the attack is about over I sometimes break out in a sweat. Is all this normal?
