Has anyone ever had a scenario where they feel light-headed or dizzy and then they yawn excessively?  It’s happened to me a few times over the years and yesterday it did, so I took my pulse and it felt slower than usual with maybe a few skipped beats.  I looked it up as much as I could and it’s some sort of vasovagal reaction.  It really scared me and I was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced something like this, or knows about it. Thank You

I'm sorry to say that I haven't had this experience before, but maybe some other members have and will be able to respond to you and help you out with this.  Are you on any meds?  If so, have you spoken with your doc about this problem?  That really would be the best source of information for you.  I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, but keep posting so that we can get to know you better and possibly help with this issue.
Take care,

I have had these experience since about 10 yrs old.  Howver, my pulse when relaxed is very low and my blood pressure is tries to the day almost bordine high in the am, by noon it is low, by 7:is is almost too low to read.  My pulse stays generally low but irractic, with pikes out of nowhere.
Do you feel warmer or sweat a little more? Do you shake, not like the chills, but hard shaking?  What time of day have thies episodes happened?  If you remeber anything, I might be able to help you allittle.

What problem bothers you the most: cardiac/ then the to wear a monitor for a week and they can telll you weather it is normal, abnoral, or what my husband calls - since he has is -fast heat.  Fast hert is stress related, generally not what is about to happen but the nature of your world.  It is not dangerous and they tell you to exercise, try yoga, and work less.

Hey there,

There is one of the AD meds that causes excessive yawning.  I was on it and my jaw got sore from all the yawning.  Check this out with your physician.  As far as cardiac, you really need to discuss that with a professional as we would not want to guess at what is going on.  Keep on posting and know we are here for you.

Hope your week-ends is a good one.
