8 year old -blacks out for 1-3 seconds

From: Confused Mom


My 8 year old daughter blacks out for no reason for about 1-3 seconds. Says "a black shade goes by her eyes". After multiple tests, doctors concluded vaso-vagal. Has anyone had this type of reaction. She doesn't lose consciousness or anything. Hardly stops what she is doing.
