My mom has non epilepic seizures. Out of the blue I meet a women who has the exact same symtoms like: bp problems, passing out,severe chest and head pain after a spell, only she does not have the seizures. She stated that it has taken her 15 years to finally find someone to help her. She said that her blood pressure is what she originally had problems with. Then she started passing out for no reason. She has gone to over 13 doctors with no help except for a Cardiologist who referred her to an Electro.... (I can't remember the full name of the specialty). The Electro.. told her that she had a vagus nerve defect which was causing the passing out spells. However, I started doing some little research and I can not find any information about vagus nerve defects and how they are related to seizures. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
