98. Yup. Vasovagal syncope issue.

brought on be an incredibly stressful time in my life.

on edit:

It happened exactly 3 times to me. The first was brought on by stress. And that night, I couldn't get warm enough, my GF literally piled every single thing in our house on top of me to try and keep me warm.

The next 2 times it happened was when I was urinating. (standing)

The Vasovagel nerve runs from the heart down to the groin. And somewhat like a natural pacemaker it regulates blood pressure and how it effects the timing with the heart. (this is how it was briefly explained to me)

And the syncope that drives it manifests itself in other ways as a well. The sight of blood and watching a woman give birth will trigger the same type of vasovagel reaction. But in rare cases, it will happen when someone (men) urinate standing up. (me).

The original stressful event triggered this reaction. However, it's been about 3 years now and it hasn't reoccurred. It was just one of those things. So now I manage the stress in my life much better.
