vaso-vagal response syndrome

From: worried sister


My brother (30 years old) has been passing out when laughing, his doctor said that it is vv response syndrome. He said it is "nothing" to worry about and that they will keep a "eye on it". I worry that he will pass out while driving (which he has done) or pass out and hurt himself. Isnt there something to be done about it?
