Your daughter is the first peson I've heard of that has/had heart pauses with vaso-vagal. My 18 year old son fainted one evening for no apparent reason. He was hospitalized and monitored. Everytime he would sit up he would faint, the heart would stop, breathing would stop and a seizure would begin. The last episone before placement of a pacemaker his heart "paused" for 41 seconds. The pacemaker has been a real miracle at keeping his heart beating but he still has near syncope episodes. I'm encouraged by how well your daughter has done and hope that someday my son will "grow" out it. They won't let him drive until he can prove that he will remain conscious so we are all hoping that it passes and he can resume a normal life. Thanks for sharing your experience. I'd be interested in receiving the information you have acquired over the years.
