Dizzy after working out? VVS?
I'm 33 year old male, received PM for heart block, and syncope- also have a high vagal response. Also just 2 weeks ago hit my 1 year anny with my pacer! Things have been pretty great until this last week.
Thursday went for a 3 mile run (I run 2 to 3 miles a day) and as soon as I got done running I bent over and tied my daughter's shoe. I stood up and BAM....super dizzy and nauseous. Laid down with feet up for 10 minutes and ate dinner, then felt 100% back to normal.
Today (Memorial day) went for a 6 mile bike ride and as soon as I got done bent over to get my daughter out of the carriage on the back of my bike and BAM...dizzy, nauseous, tingling feeling all over...very similar to syncope episodes I would have prior to PM insertion. Laid down for ~ 30 minutes, ate some more food and feel much better (although kind of wiped out from it).
Talked to the cardio on call and they said it sounds like BP is plummeting (something they mentioned when I first got it that I may be a candidate for Vasovagal syncope or neurocardiogenic syncope) but never really tested me (tilt table) or put me on meds for BP. But my PM looked great in the remote interogation. I've never had any problems until this week? I'm going in tomorrow hopefully to get an update with my cardiologist as they said ER trip not needed today.
Has anyone else had this?
Both times I was well hydrated. Although I was excercising on an empty stomach and food seems to bring me back to life quickly (I'm not diabetic but I'm always snacking bc when I get hungry I can get light headed). Both times I bent down and stood up? What's weird is I rand both Friday - Sunday and never had one problem.
