I had a vasectomy a week ago friday and passed out during the procedure and took several hours to fully come around afterwards. Although I was sore physically, I felt okay emotionally until last Sunday night when pout of the blue, I had to run to my bed and lie down for fear of vomiting and/or passing out again. Ever since then (4 days) my symptoms of nausea, shaking and racing heart come and go literally every few minutes. When they're gone, I feel back to normal and then all of a sudden, I'm looking for the closest chair or bed to just sit and close my eyes and breath deep and then 15 - 30 seconds later I'm okay again.
This doesn't sound very similar to other posts that I've read here. Any thoughts or suggestions? Is there any chance that it will clear up for good as suddenly as it appeared?
Any new symptoms must be checked by a doctor, such as this, although a traumatic incident can and does cause a trigger event which can promote panic. Basically you can become hyper aware of your body, and when you "perceive" a feeling related to passing out you can go into a panic. But like I had mentioned, any new symptoms always need attention, its very easy for the medical community to blame panic.
My GP who I have a great relationship doesn't seem concerned and assures me that I just don't deal well with pain and that the anxiety will go away in a short while. It would be easier to control if things stayed either good or bad long enough to deal with it but it keeps coming and going all day long.
