vaso-vagal syndrome

From: Frieda


My mother suffers from terrible episodes of vaso-vagal and she looses consciousness (most of the times) and bowel control. She's been hospitalized, thoroughly checked, here and in the States(John Hopkins and Cleveland Clinic) and nobody seems to pinpoint the cause! Could depression have anything to do with this? She has been depressed for years and has refused medication because it makes her hands tremble and painting is her passion. Thank you for your opnion. Frieda S. Puerto Rico
