10 year old fainting

From: JRT


My 10yo daughter just woke from her second episode in approximately two years. Both episodes occured while changing her earrings. I am so stymied by this, is it treatable, is it physiological, psychological, what? The Dr. kind of just shrugs it off but I'm worried.
