Re: vaso-vagal syncope

From: Don Morgan


I was fairly young whenI started passing out, about 6 or so I am now 22 years old and have just now found out the problem. I have had many syncope episodes none thankfully resulting in serious injury. But I am writting to help encourage parents and friends to look into these things I am currently in the military and recently returned from DS2. I passed out 2 times over there thankfuly I was not on the fron lines but never the less people were depending on me. I am no unable to deploy and the military is further evaluating my case. Please pay attention to the warning signs exspecially in children my syncope could have easly resulted in my death or someone elses. Thaks for your time. please feel free to e-mail me at
