It must be terrifying for you as parents to witness these attacks. I'm 34 and I've experienced the same type episodes as your daughter for years, and I know it's horrible - the stomach pain, dizziness, disorientation, and seizure-like faints make you feel like death is around the corner. Incredibly enough, I've had no luck at all with doctors; I've given up. My husband, who has witnessed my attacks, can't believe the doctors just shrug and dismiss them as "vagal episodes" and say it's nothing to worry about. Try telling that to any of us in the throes of an attack! Sorry I couldn't be any real help...just know you're not alone. God bless you and your family. Lorraine
