our 21 year old daughter is in the middle of testing for what I believe to be vaso-vagal problems. she passes out and goes into a seizure. it is always pain related. our doctor witnessed an episode after she had a blood draw and referred us to a neurologist. I would like her to go to a cardiologist and have a tilt table test, but he wants us to start with a neurologist because of the seizures. we have an appointment set up in jan. I would like to know if anyone else has seizures along with this, and what if anything can be done. does anyone think that there is a psychological aspect to this problem.
