Re: Coughing and passing out

Hello, does the cleveland clinic do a good job with vaso depressor syncope. Relatives have been on me about g;oing there for my symptoms. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with vaso depressor syncope. THe medicine I am on does help with many of the symptoms, except for the seizure like activities (shaking and jerking). My head rocks back and forth in a rythmic motion, my arms and legs shake, and sometimes I just have jerking movements. I am always awake during these episodes. I have been to a neurologist and have had the 3 day hospital study done. It is not epilepsy.
