Vasovagal Response

AntiSpam: orange
From: Judith Becker


my son who also has down sydrome has fainted twice in the last nine years with some tremors which they have said might be seizure related. They ordered seizure medicine for him, but nver confirmed that it was a seizure...they did a brain scan and said during some other tests that his stomach area had some kind of problem with a lymph node in that area? He also had an AV Canal repair in 1984...and is otherwise healthy
