My 6 yr old daughter fainted at school about 2 months ago. Didn't think a whole lot about it. It happened again at school, on the way to the Dr. and at the Dr. office. We rushed her to the Dr. and he said that he thought she had vaso vagal syncope. What is this? and what can I do to help these fainting spells from happening again. Is having a stomache ache normal? My husband and I are real concerned. please help.
