I too have this. In 1992 my doctors suggested that I get a pacemaker at the age of 24. After second, third and fourth opions, I had the surgery. Knock on wood, I have not had another episode of fainting. In February of 2001, I had my first replacement. I still have the symptoms (dizziness, nausea and sweats) but not nearly as bad as before.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
