Vaso-Vagal Discussion

[ Home | Contents | Search | Post | Reply | Next | Previous | Up ]




My daughter has had reoccurring seizures since she was 1 month old. It usually occurs when she is fatigued combined with her bumping, scraping, falling or any form of injury. It appears she cannot handle the pain, gets really upset, her whole body contracts, she stops breathing then passes out. These crisis are not becoming more frequent but her recovery time is stretching. It has evolved to the point where I administer mouth to mouth and the latest required some CPR reanimation, I am obviously panicking when time elapsed before recovery is getting longer and longer. I have been reassured that this condition should disappear over the next year(she will be 3 in september), however I am worried because the recovery time is worsening and I fear what might happen when it occurs and I am not around. Please reply with any pertinent experience or insight.
