vaso vagal response



My daughter has some kind of condition where - when she is going to be sick to her stomach, she passes out and her eyes roll back in her head like she is having a seizure. It only lasts a couple of minutes, but scares the heck out of us when it does. I would like to identify it so that when she is away from home, please understand what it is and how to treat it. Is this the vaso vagal response people talk about? Please e-mail me with a response. Thanks so much.
