I was told what happen was a vaso-vagal episode but im not sure. I stayed at hospital with my daughter for 24 hrs(having baby) I was sitting most of time. Did have some very small amt of food that day. Later in day drank diet coke and short time after had severe abd pain followed by diarreha vomiting, profuse swetting and syncope spell with severe itching, reddness and hot feelling in my hands,feet, face and ears. Was taken to ER gave iv fluids, xrays,ekg, I have had about 4-5 similar episodes since in varing degrees. This started in March, some have been worse, and some not quite as bad. I was given a Rx for Bentyl. Thank you
