Micturition syncope and defecation syncope
Defecation and micturition syncopes are forms of the so-called situational syncopes, which occur immediately after precipitating situations, such as urination and defecation. There may be associated brief jerking or rhythmic movements, but there is no associated incontinence, tongue biting, or postictal state. Recovery usually occurs within seconds without vasomotor or other sequelae. Patients are amnestic for the period of lost consciousness.
