Since the first time I can remember my son vomiting, he has passed out. He is a normal happy teenager now and still suffers from passing out when he vomits. Episodes last any where from seconds to minutes, resulting in several minor inguries. He has had MRI, EEG CAT scans and all results are normal. Been to Pediartitian,Catiologists, Neurologists.He knows when he is going to vomit and has learned not to panic and get down to the floor. He is a young man now and What worries us now as he goes to college the danger of injury and that other students won't know how to handle him when be becomes sick. Any ideas?
