I also have a daughter that was diagnosed with Vaso-Vagal Syndrome. It 's frightening to anyone who is around at the time of an episode. Recently, she was incarcerated. I've done everything I can do and made all the phone calls I know to do from the warden down to medical at that facility trying to explain what this condition is . They've never heard of it and most tests come up negative. She is enduring 102 degree temperatures under stressfull conditions and they say they find nothing wrong with her. That's because they never heard of it and they are not the kindest people on the earth. Because she is not supposed to be at that unit due to classification, she's in segregation and theres no a/c. She's stressed out as well with heat rash due to dehydration. I'm trying to get her on a medical unit because I'm afraid she's going to die. Nobody will cooperate there. I'm about ready to call Montel to expose this condition! Last time I saw her she was so dehydrated, her body was covered,covered in heat rash. Any ideas ? I have Atrio Ventricular Nodal ReentryTacchy which makes my heart race uncontrollably. It's raced up to 260bpmand sometimes for 15 minutes at a time. Feels like my heart is in my throat. I don't like the way it feels, but it's not painful. You can actually see my clothes moving due to the pounding beats. I'm feeling like maybe I passed it to her through heredity. I'm not so concerned with myself as I am with her condition and situation. How can I help her get to a medical facility? It's not that bad of a crme she did, but I'm afraid she's going to die in this heat. And is her condition and my condition linked?
