Re: vaso vagal



wow, I guess that would be scarey. My 13 year old daughter was recieving her flu vacicination yesterday, and after she got it she had one of these episodes. It was very frightening. She passed out, shaking and pupils completely dilated, she turned white as a ghost. She then needed oxygen to have a normal breathing pattern return. The doctor told me that this is the vasovagal episode. But I am not too sure why it happened. The reponse was she had "worked herself up" so much about getting a needle. psychosomatic??? not sure but would like any other info that may be helpful.
