Your storry sounds exactly like mine. I too saw a movie at school and fainted, and have fainted many times since. my docotr also tried to get me to take floureniff. (same kind of thing)

I didn't do it!

Your daughter will learn the symptoms. needs to lie down anytime she feels it coming on. Or put her head between her knees. drink LOTS of water and eat salty food, gatorage and V8 both work. She needs to be patient with herself! She'll be pokay but she needs to be careful driving. Being sad, stressed out, or in pain will all trigger a faint.
