About 2 years ago my 17 year old son was diagnosed with vasal vagal syncope. Its been very scary. He has all symptoms just like everry one else here. The thing that concerns me most is he gona wake up after an episode. Recently he has a event monitor. He called me from the school saying he did not have it on and he wasnt feeling very well i went to the school and found him uncouncious sitting up and not breathing. I was traumatised. Called 911. I was very upset that nobody listened to him. The school is starting to give me a hard time. Any one else with this problem. He has a episode a couple of times a day. He is on Florinef. And a antidepresent only because he is getting nervouse with all these episodes. Is it normal to be uncounsious for a couple of minutes? Help desperate mother!!!!
