"youll grow out of it"

From: ali


When I was about 6 I was diagnosed with vaso vagal fainting. The doctor told my mother I would grow out of it and for years I was fine. About 3 years ago I had my wisdom teeth removed and was in a great deal of pain this resulted in a seizure like reaction. Although I have been fine since I recently sprained my ankle and immediately felt a stomache sickenss and ringing in my ears similar to what i experience before I have a seizure yet after a few minutes it subsided. I am wondering if this is something that I can be medicated for or what I should do. I just hate the fact that this could happen anywhere at any time for what appears to be because of anything related to pain. any help would be great!
