I have come to believe there is a definite correlation between seizures and VV. I have been diagnosed with epilepsy, and yet last year when I gave blood (Big MISTAKE) 'passed' out, became dehydrated and had to be taken to the er, the docs ,not having knowledge of my epilepsy, said I had vaso vagal. 80% of all seizures that I have experienced have been pain related. A number of these have come from having shots. At the dentist, blood being drawn, giving blood. At other times its been everything from getting sunburnt,falling off a bike, twisting my ankle, staying in the hottub too long, to having a bad case of the flu. I find myself avoiding physical pain at all cost, plus I carry water and gatorade in my vehicle to keep myself hydrated. I wish I could find a physician that could be trusted to discuss this.
