My daughter has been "passing out" since february! We recently found out she has two heart murmurs (of which I personally saw the reason of the murmurs when she had her echocardiogram done and the cardiologist snubbed it...theyre caused by a faulty valve in her heart)! She passes out when she runs, swims, gets excited, or very mad! When she passes out her pupils dialate very big, the left side of her body goes paralyzed but the right side has movement, her eyes blink fast, sometimes she quits breathing, and when she comes to its takes a while for her to be able to function the left side of her body, she is confused and her speach is usually slurred! She has had an MRI to check for brain tumor (it was clear), shes had multiple EEG'S done to check for seizure activity bc she had epilepsy when she was a baby, shes had an in-hospital 4 day continuous EEG done, an echocardiogram, and an anbulatory (at home) 3 day EEG! All her tests have come back completely normal except her echocardiogram! Shes been to multiple hospitals, doctors/specialists and so far none of the doctors have ever seen this or has any idea what could be possibly be wrong with her! Has anyone out there ever heard of this before or have experienced this? Im out of ideas! Shes going to another/better hospital to have more testing done but any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I honestly think her passing out episodes are caused by her heart but we have no idea why her nerves are going "haywire" and why its not showing up on the EEG'S! Any help would be greatly appreciated! =)
