We have been seeing a neurologist and she does not belive it to be seizure's my question is can this be a vagal responce?......or some sort of cardio realated problem.......what kind of tests should we be asking for? this does'nt happen all the time in the tub but has been happing more in the last 2 months.....he usally will sleep for bout an hour afterwards then is up and nothing is wrong he does not act tierd or different in any other way.....his mother and I are looking for answers because we have become quite affraid of giving him a bath....but as you know a 2yr old cannot go with out a bath........what should we do???? thanks
