vaso vagal depressor syncope and now seizures



I am a mother who is desperately trying to help my 18 yearold daughter who has had vaso vagal now for 9 months and has within the last 3months had two "episodes" of seizure activity.We've been to Rush hospital in chicago, the epileptic center and everything was "normal" and she had no seizures.She was now put "back" on Tegretol,can't drive,I just want to cry. Can someone give me a specialist in the Chicago/midwest area? I don't believe this is all in my daughter's head.
