Re: Vaso-Vagal seizures and passing with stop breathing

From: roxane


I too have siezure like activities my head rocks back and forth and my arms and legs shake but I am always awake during them. I have had 2 eegs, heart holter monitor, ekg, cat scan, mri and on and on I have been tested to the point that I don't want anymore tests. I have come to the conclusion that all of my symptoms and episodes are from vaso depressor syncope. (2 failed tilt-table tests). My eye sight is also bad during an episode. I am on celexa and it helps all of the other symptoms, except the shaking and jerking and blurry vision. My cardiologist is thinking about sending me to the Cleveland Clinic. But I don't know if I can take anymore tests.
