Vaso Vagal

From: Michelle Ball


My 4 1/2 year old has fainted 3 times and was diagnosed with Vaso Vagal. The first time was in the Dr. office after getting her 2 year old shots. The second time was in a beauty shop standing while my neice was getting her hair shampooed. The third was at church standing while making crafts. We had complete blood tests done and everything was fine. My pediatrition ordered a referral to a neurologist just to cover all grounds since we already had blood work done. He feels confident that it is Vaso Vagal. Is this something one grows out of? Is there medication for this. This is very scary.
