Had a lovely lie in this morning only to be cut short by a vasovagal episode that saw the paramedics being called. I am ok, I have had these before but the pain was from undiagnosed Endometriosis and cysts.This time it was an IBS spasm and it was searingly hot very low down. The pain started in bed and then I was trying to get a bowel movement and a pee out at the same time but it was tricky. My GP rang and said that it was nothing to worry about and to rest, which I did for another 4 hours. Anyone else get these attacks? I have just started on Mebeverine so the irony is killing me :lol:

why would intestinal spasms cause you to faint?

My doctor said that it causes shock in the body and therefore my blood pressure dropped as a result, hence the fainting. I have just read that there is a vagus nerve that travels from the intestines up to the area near the brain, I think that this has something to do with it too :mellow:
