I was diagnosed with having Vasovagal attacks on March 17, 2006 which was my 34th birthday. I have had the attacks since I was about 30 years old and never knew what there were, but I KNEW I could handle them. My husband now of 4 months was very concerned and asked me to see a doctor. He's seen me have at least 3 attacks. It's very scary and I wonder how these attacks are actually affecting my body.

  • Did you ever get an answer to this question? My daughter is 9 years old and was diagnosed with vasovagal syndrome and it is extremely scary! I have asked the doctors many of questions, she has seen peds cardiologist, peds neurologists and no one really has answered my questions. She will generally faint when she has the flu and feels the vomitting sensation. Her most recent flu episode resulted in her fainting 8 times in a little over 24 hours. Have you ever had this happen? Do you have any advise for a parent? Any websites you may recommend it seems they all say the same things, although, all of her doctors act like this is just what happens to a child who has vasovagal, doesn't seem at all normal to me though. Anything you can reply with is greatly appreciated...PS Her drs all say that it doesn't have any real affect on the body unless you hit your head, then you would want to get looked at, this I find hard to believe as well! :-(Thank you!cmlogan31@comcast.net(I have never been on a website such as this therefore I hope just leaving my email address is ok?!!?)
