Re: vaso vagel and running



I have experienced what is called vaso vagel since I was 7 years old. It wasn't until about 5 years ago that I was told what it was. I am now 34 years old. I can't tell you exactly how many times I have fainted, only that it has been an extremely high number that is unable to count. The reason I am finally looking into this on the web is that my daughter, who is eight, has just experienced her first episode this evening. This has inspired me to look further into this and understand more. I find that it is brought on with pain but has happened less frequently as I have gotten older.
