From: concerned parent
I have a 12 yr old daughter. For 3 yrs she has had 'seizure' type attacks. No convulsions but sudden loss of consciousness and drop attacks. Folwing 2 years of negative EEG's we ended uo last week at Gt Ormond Street Children's Hospital London.We were told there is a possibilty that it could be Vaso Vagal attacks and she is being booked to have the tilt table test done. My daughter is VERY fit and active swim training 6 days a week for a total of 8 hrs as well as going to the gym. only last week she swam 200 lenghts in a 25m pool in 2 hrs. She was fine. other days she can swim 3 lengths feels odd and collapses. She has sunk twice in the pool! They osccur after exercise, during lessons in school whilst sat at a desk, watching TV, basically anytime. Anyone any clues please?
