I've had V-V since I was a teenager (I'm 35 now), but until recently I've been the only one in my family - that I know of - that has this condition. My dad, who is a healty 58 year old, has had several episodes of fainting in the last year or so, with no noticeable correlation between the attacks. Is it very unusual to begin having these V-V attacks later in life?
