Vaso Depressor Syncope

From: Lauren Fortier


I recently found this discussion page when doing research on my condition. I have never been able to talk to anybody else who has this and would love to. Anyone can start a topic with me. I am 18 and a freshman in college. I was diagnosed the winter of my junior year of high school. I have fainting episodes with seizure activity. It also interacts with my narcolepsy, and the two trigger each other. I'm happy to discuss anything with anyone.
