gertie Posted January 14, 2010 Report Share Posted January 14, 2010 For those of you that faint with vasovagal syncope or NCS how do you cope mentally? I've been doing this for years but I still panic when I feel it is about to happen. I feel very insecure & like I am a weak person, which I suppose I must be or I wouldn't pass out. Are you alone when this happens? I'm usually alone. This a.m. I barely made it to the bathroom with colon cramps before I knew I was going to pass out. I fell over on my table. My legs were getting numb & so wet with sweat I felt like I was going to slide off the commode. If I wasn't the one experiencing this I would think it almost comical. I could not get conscious enough to get back to the bed for about 15 - 20 min. Without being graphic I had to be conscious enough to clean myself up before going back to bed. Hours later I'm still weak & BP still not back to normal. Sorry if I've asked this b/4 but I still panic occ. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
