Re: Vasovagal and my 17 year old



I took my daughter to the doctor yesterday for blood work, shortly after they had taken her blood she said her head hurt and then fell to the floor. Her eyes were rolled back in her head and she was convulsing. This lasted about 30 seconds. She started to cry as her eyes came back to normal and did not know what had happened to her. She complained of her head hurting, she was clammy and sweaty and later vomited. The doctors said it was her nerves and that she Hyperventilated. My daughter is 11 yrs old. I was wondering if anyone had also had this happen to them and if she might have this condition.
