vaso vagal syndrome

From: cdemase


My 15 year old daughter was diagnosed with this syndrome by her pediatrician. He took her blood pressure and a sample of her blood.He told me that her blood test results were normal (as he had predicted) and that her symptoms were typical of this teenage disorder. It happened twice this month, both times as she was stepping out of the shower. Her instinct was to immediately crouch near the floor with her head down and remain there for approximately 5-10 minutes until it passed. She experienced nausea and said she was seeing "gray".
