Vaso-Vagal Syndrome

From: TMays


My husband has this condition but he also suffers from convulsions when he has this episode. His neurologist has diagnosed him as having a vagel nerve problem but has not put him on any kind of medication for the seizures. His medical doctor prescribed dilantin for the convulsions but he was allergic to this drug. I am having problems with getting him any type of medical help. My sister in law works for a Dr. and he told her that it was a possibility that my husband should have a heart pacemaker? Do any one of you suffer from convulsions when you have the vagel episode? If you have suffered convulsions along with the passing out, please let me know if you have had any success getting medical help. I am at my wit's end with this. It always happens when my husband is under an extreme amount of stress. You can e-mail me at if you have any suggestions. Thanks!
