we are in the midst of testing for our 21 year old daughter who passes out and has seizures in response to pain. there is a strong family history of passing out in response to pain (the seizures are something new). I passed out as a teenager and so did my mother. my sister and sister-in-law both still pass out in regards to pain and they are in their 30s and 40s. I believe some people seem to outgrow the condition. I'm hoping this is the case for our daughter
