In brief: Symptoms

The vagus nerve controls heart rate blood pressure and other automatic functions of stomach, bowel, bladder.
Vaso-vagal syncope is common with sudden pale, light-headed and faint. Stress, shock, donating blood etc can cause this reaction. Rubbing the neck may induce reaction. Heart rate studies may suggest a problem.
