Lori, I did not start fainting till I was 55yrs old. Some doctor feel that this condition starts either in chilhood or adolesense(SP?). Has your father been tested for this? How does he feel pryor too fainting and after the faint? It took me 2yrs to finally get a diagnosis. Most doctors are not familair with dysautonomic conditions. Hope this helps.
