I'm happy to hear that there are others out there that have experienced this often misdiagnosed condition.
My story started when i was a teenager. I have never fainted before in my life, and didn't know it was going to happen until I woke up on the kitchen floor with my mother telling me that I had passed out and had a seizure.
Our family doctor ran a variety of tests and found nothing, but still wanted me on anti-seizure medication. My parents nor I didn't like the idea of being on this medication until we had an answer to my problem. After a few more incidents, now being triggered when i was receiving an injection, we found that I was slightly hypoglycemic.
I spent the next few years fine, and trying to watch my blood sugar levels, but in my early twentys, I had another fainting spell and seizure, and my new family doctor wisely sent me to a grea neurologist. She tested me and told me that it sounded like Vaso-vagal, and that my brain, for some reason, also adds a seizure when I faint.
I'm on no medication for this. I have found that intense stress seems to bring on the episodes.
Has anybody else experienced vaso vagal and seizures?
I have been passing out since I was a child and everyone said I did this for attention. Trust me if I want attention it wouldn't be by passing out. I have talked to my doctor and he mention vagel nerve. I did some research and just found your site. I now know I'm not losing my mind. I still don't know much about this condition and would like some feed back. I know when I'm going to passing out most of the time. This is a scary feeling. Any comments would be helpful.
