My daughter is 6-years-old and about six months ago she fainted it scared me to death I thought she was dying because she has never had any kind of health problems. Since then she has been fainting about once a month but lately it seems like her fainting spells are getting closer together and right before she faints she gets real pale and her lips turn white and then she goes limp into my arms. It is scaring me to death! I was reading these comments and some of the symptoms that people have sound like my daughters.
