From: Geoff - Chicago


I recently had what appeared to be a seizure. Actually, this was the second time in 11 months, the first diagnosed as Heat syncope casued by dehydration on a hot day. My latest incident, with the exact same sysmptoms happened on a not too hot day, and after negative CT scan, EEG, and MRI, I was diagnosed as having a veso vagal episode. Is there anyone who can tell me they too displayed seizure like symptoms (convulsions, biting of the tongue, bladder loss) and were also diagnosed as having VV. It would be nice to know I am not alone in the severity of fainting/blackouts.
