Re: Ouch ! Vaso-vagal broke my nose

From: ME TOO!!!


I too broke my nose after passing out as a result of a vaso vagal response. I faint at the sight of blood and too many time, I end up getting hurt. Try fainting (falling head first off the table) after having a pap smear, wearing nothing but a small towel...which flew right off. While I wasn't hurt, I sure felt like a fool. Good to know that I am not the only one. Hopefully, you only faint while wearing something bigger than a towel.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. 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.
