I went to see my doctor today, and told him what happened on Saturday. I also told him it had happened once before in 1994 (I was told I might need surgery for tendonitis), and almost happened again in 2001 (I was told how LASIK would work). Right away, he told me it was vasovagal syncope, and only to worry about it if it happened in a way inconsistent with the past, and to avoid stress. I’ve got a physical scheduled for August now.
Avoid stress, huh? I found out yesterday my job is over on July 9th, I’ve got a wedding and a house that’s falling apart to pay for, and possible impending family drama as well.
