Customer Question

Pass out spells- I stopped breathing the last time. CPR from my wife.
Few but happening more often. 4 or 5 in 3 years. But 2 light episodes in the last months
- I'll list symptoms in order –this scenario has happened three times. Others have been a little less traumatic.
1st minute -My stomach gets distended
I start feeling dry in the month
2nd min - Heart rate increases to over 120bpm
My head starts pressurizing, in 2 minutes eyes and face are totally red, 1 more min eyes are bugging out.
5th- 10th min - I feel like I have to go number 2, now on the toilet, sometimes heavy diarrhea
Start losing my sight and hearing
Blood pressure gets very low 97/49 pluse 137
10 to 15 min- The pain from the head pressure is unbearable and I pass out.
During time of being passed out -Convulsions, and heavy vomiting, contents are very thick like a paste.
Wife and child couldn’t find a pulse or tell if I was breathing. 911 and CPR
I woke up a bit to recognize chest compressions but too weak to do anything and pass back out.
I came around with her screaming my name. Got up went to the bed to rest.
Paramedics found very low blood pressure, and blood sugar to be good.
Under Doctor Orders, I passed the heart test with flying colors. Chest and head x-ray was good.
Doc said vasovagal. I’m Just not sure this is correct.
