My Dr.back in 1995 said it was the first to mention veso vegal from that time on the Dr. keep saying it was a Migraine. I have been a suffer of Migraine headachs since I was a child and I knew this was not a migrain. The headaches were differant from a migraim. All of the times that I have passed out i had a pain in the base of my head. I have gone to Dr. and they say the are unclear as to what it was. All test came back normal ie blood, ct, ekg, eeg I am 25 yo and have a 5 yo son. I am worried that this is something serious and I can't seem to find the proper help. Since my last episoid I have had a bad headache that will not go away. I am unclear as to what veso vegal is. I can't find any info on the internet about this except for your site. Is there any way of actually knowing what veso vegal is. Please help
