dena,

Get as many opinions as needed to secure a definite diagnosis! Here is a good article to use as a checklist for diagnosis protocols. My best guess is vasovagal syncope (and it is only a guess and place to start your exploration) so I selected soemthing approrpiate.

Keep us posted on what you find. Half the population experiences syncope at some point so I am certain many are interested in your experiences!

ya that is what they r saying it is something to do with my bp getting to low orthostatichypotension i believe is what he called it and he also used the vasovagal term as well.
