vaso vagal response

From: roxanne


Both my 4yrs old and 6yrs have had a vaso vagal experinece within the last 2 weeks. My 4 yr old has been referred to a cardialogist. My 6yr old we found is anemic. Both had complained of severe stomach pain and passed out. After all this I've since found that my older brother now 38yrs old sufered from vaso vagal response when he was 6yrs old. My children's pediatrician had asked if there was a history in our family of vaso vagal response. It seems there is. My husband and I both hope that both incidences were the first and last. They were the worst and scrariestdays of our life.
