pain due to vaso vagal

From: kerrie


my son is 7 and i was told last year that he had vaso-vagal i new about this as a friend has the same but she passes out more often. my son only passes out due to pain form falling or stress from falling, but the last time he did it looked like he was fitting and he normuly waits till i have him in my arms befor passing out, it might sound odd but that seems to be wot happens i am conserned as he went befor i got to him. i dont have much infomashon on this and it is very hard to find .or if there is it is all in doctors words which i dont understand he is due to go back to the docs in the next fuw days so hope to find out a bit more. is there any web sites i coud go to and find out more for my self thanks to you all as been good to see people have the same as my son
