My friend has this vaso-vegal condition and today in class passd out for about 15 minutes, she had slight tremors about the hands, legs and lower jaw, her eyes were also twitching. She drives approximately 45 minutes to and from school, and we are worried that she will pass out while she is driving. Her episodes are increasing in frequency, she has had 3 in the last 4 month. She is 21 years old and has a small son, she wants to get pregnant in the spring and the extra stress doesn't seem like it could be good for her. Her episodes seem to happen when she is stressed out and upset about somethin, there may be a connection with her diet somehow, but she also has had all of the tests and they are all negative. She was finally given a tilt test and this is when they diagnosed her. Her doctors seem to be clueless and say it mainly happens to people 60 yrs and older, any information that you could give me would be appreciated. I hope your daughter is doing well. Thanks, alesia Dallas, Texas 972-475-5879
