Re: Daughter aged 5 diagnosed with Vaso-Vagal Reaction



My 17 1/2 year old son has just been diagnosed as having vagal reactions and like you it seems to be to pain stimuli although perceived pain (such as fear of having blood drawn) can trigger an episode. I am not finding much information on this and again like you we have been to cardiologists, neurologists etc.. and they say that he does not have a seizure disorder but 2 years later we are finally given the name of vagal reactions after the pediatrician finally witnessed his latest episode. Where can I find more info on this. Please respond to
