Re: Vasovagel diagnosis and what to do



My two year old has been seen for this. So far, I'm not understanding the whole thing yet, but I read that dehydration can be a factor. Also some triggering event may cause this, such as a fall as in my son's case. Interesting that lying him down flat on his back during this time has curbed the "passing out". Supposably, the blood pools in the legs thus causing this lightheadedness and eventually fainting. When you feel this try, lying down and kick your feet up! Good luck.
