Syncope and Orgasm

Asked by ultreya (Female; 42; Multiple Connective Tissue Disorder (lupus, Sjogrens, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis)and occasional optical migraines, and elevated LDL that was discovered in the hospital.; Relevant drugs:Lipitor, levothyroxine, atenolol for migraine prevention, citalopram, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D ) on Sun 11, Apr 2010 01:54pm

I was recently hospitalized after collapsing at work (diagnoses were dehyration, hypotension, orthostatic/vasovagal syncope, hypoxia, and an elevated troponin level). In the end (after multiple tests including extensive blood work, CAT scans, ECG, EKG, cardiac cath, EEG,etc) medically, everything is now within normal limits, and the medical staff is perplexed as to the reason why I had this acute domino effect incident. My question is kind of personal, and embarrassing.... Could the fact that I had multiple orgasms the night before this happened have any bearing on my collapse? I've occasionally lost consciousness for brief periods (a couple of seconds) after orgasming, but that did not happen the night before I fainted. My husband and I are hesitant to make love, now. THANK YOU!
