Re: does my daughter have vaso vago



My son had the same symptoms and the doctors had no clue what to do. He would turn blue, be unresponsive and lathargic. It took three trips the the hospital for weeklong stays and every test that could be done. Finally, the top county neurologist finally came to see our son. After we described the symptons and how each episode took place, he diagnosed him with Vaso Vagal and said he would out grow it. He is 7 years old and has not had a true episode since he was 6 months old. The Doctor explained it was from the excess saliva he was producing from his teething. There have been no residual affects and he is healthy and normal and strong. I suggest you push your doctor to keep testing and tell them about Vaso-Vagel. Your daughter's symptoms sound exactly lime my son's.
