Vasovagal attacks or vasovagal syncope is the fainting induced by vagus nerve. There are lots of vasvagal reactions and all are mediated by vagus nerve. Apart from syncope or fainting some other symptoms can also accompany vasovagal attack like nausea, vomiting, excessive sweating, headache, light headedness, vision disturbance, discomfort in chest and heart.
