From: Ashley's Mom/


After my 21yr.old daughter cut her hand opening a can, she passed out and proceeded to go into seizure(losing bladder control)It didn't last long but she had no memory of what had happened after she cut her hand.In the ERroom, it was the 1st time I/we had ever heard of vaso-vagal. She had a very similar fainting spell/seizure last Sept. and after CT scan,EEG etc. NO Explanation! This info.from ER makes perfect sense and now the big question is how to keep a very intelligent 21yr.old working towards her Masters in Pschology from getting,overexerted,stressed etc.that seems to trigger these vaso-vagal related seizures??? Any helpful insight would be greatly appreciated and am so glad we found this web site. Thanks
