Re: small circle?

Medically a vaso-vagal faint can apparently be elicited striking certain nerve points in the right sequence. The rapid drop in blood pressure can cause someone to faint. It's like getting up from a lying position too fast when you have low blood pressure. The rapid drop in blood pressure, especially if you have orthostatic hypotension, will cause you to black out.
