Re: Vaso-Vagal Syndrome & Seizures



My 14 year old daughter has POTS and fortunately does not pass out often, but when she does it is for 10-15 mins. and the whole time she kicks, hits, jerks like crazy. According to Dr. Grubb, an expert in this ailment, some individuals look like they are having a seizue (but it really is not) when they are passed out. Most people with POTS or vasovagal are fairly still when they are "out" but a few have the psuedo seizures.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
