My 4 year old daughter was diagnosised with having a vasovagal episode. That really scared me. I was told not to worry, yet have no real explaination to as why it happened. This worries me. I have now read about The Long QT syndrome,which they say is sometimes overlooked as a Vasovagal event or seizure. I find this very frightening. She had a complex seizure at a year old and was on phenabarb for 3 years. She has had abnormal EEG's. She is now off all medication. And besides the sometimes loss of color and near fainting spells, She seems like a very healthy,happy,normal,active little girl. If anyone out ther has any suggestions or information for me please E-mail me at the above address. Thank you for any help you may give.
