Re: vasovegal response

From: Beth


My son, aged 11, just started passing out this year. Afterwards he vomits and then he sleeps. When he wakes he feels completely brand new again. The doctors are giving him a sleep deprived EEG, to see if it is epilepsy. If they find nothing, he will be off to the tilt table. Epilepsy runs in my family...does it run in yours?
