Me friend has a boy age 3 the mystery is whenever he cries he passes out , he was in Baptist Hospitol in Winston- Salem NC for two weeks with a wire hat on his head hooked to monitors to watch his brain waves but they dont know what causes it. and now for the next three weeks he is in a hospitol in Charlotte NC doing the same thing to see why he does that. it is a mystery to us and the doctors.It is diffacult to keep him wired up and to keep him still.

  • The following may be of no help at all, but is either the mother of the child a Vegan or is their a possibility of B12 deficiency. Some times this will affect nerves and motor skills in infants. You may do further research on google and mention to physician. It may not be the case it all, but it came to mind when I saw your post.Best wishes,KCarmen

  • That is scary. I wish you the best. If it's any comfort it sounds like the doctors are doing everything they can. And if this event is as simple as you describe (cries and then out) I would imagine it would be neurological. Especially if those two components are very consistent regardless of the environment, diet, etc (btw, not discounting the b12, that is a huge deal just I would think there would be other symptoms as well).I wonder if its a form of narcolepsy??? I also imagine an MRI of the brain has been done already?

  • Two thoughts on this: If he passes out when he cries...1. Its possible he is having lack of oxygen. Perhaps his lungs aren't able to inhale enough oxygen while he is crying. 2. A heart problem. Where not enough oxygen rich blood is carried to his brain causing him to pass out.
