Hi 1st time to forum and need some info on V V, my son is 21 months old and is clumsy like all his age and falls, trips jump etc and has been kncoked out twice in the last 6 months. The first time Dr. treated as concoucsion and he knocked himself out when he hit his head, cried first,then was limp, blue lips, and eyes wondering 3-4mins, second time fell from chair and hit his head again but not hard but had another episode but only 45 sec. or so and no blue lips this time. When doctor saw him he thinks it could be related to V.V as both falls where very minor but still the same result. He feels this is my son's reaction to the pain associated to the fall just the same as someone who gets a needle.Anyone ever heard of something similar? Is there tests to verify V.V? What should I do from here as all family is scared to babysit incase this happens again. Thanks for any help!
