    Can getting punched in the stomach cause vasovagal syncope?

    No. I would have no effect on efferent pathways to the heart or carotid sinuses.

    OH definitely, but probably not by vagal nerve stimulation: more simply due to pain, compression, bruising or maybe perforation of bleeding.

    I read in a book entitled The Balance Within that the reason you feel like vomiting when punched in the gut is due to stimulation or compression of the vagus nerve...
