Can you get Vaso-Vagal Response  during swimming??

From: Karina


My niece has had 3 incidents during swimming. She says everything turns black and then her face turns ghostly white and her legs are bright red. She says she sees everything spinning along with nausia. She has vomited twice, and after a few min she is feeling a bit better. My sister took her to the doctor and her doctor said it was Vaso-Vagal Response.. She didnt report any pain, just feeling sick, do you think this sounds like Vaso Vagal?
