Re: fainting or seizure?

From: Mary


Maggie, I would be interested if you have gotten any feedback. I have recently been diagnosed with seizures, however, my symptoms are very similar (almost identicle) to yours. The doctor is recommending medication however these incedences occur so infrequently (once every three to six year) and are so minor, I am very uncomfortable taking medication for it. I would appreciate any further infomration you have received on this condition.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
