Hello,
The exact cause of your daughter’s illness can be confirmed only after I examine you. The common symptoms of vasovagal syncope are lightheadedness, nausea, the feeling of being extremely hot, uncomfortable feeling in the heart, clouding of thoughts, slight inability to speak/form words, weakness and visual disturbances such as lights seeming too bright, fuzzy or tunnel vision, and sometimes a feeling of nervousness .Anxiety attacks, Stokes Adams attacks, TIAs, hypoglycaemia are few other conditions which may mimic vasovagal syncope. If you are not satisfied with the diagnosis seeking second opinion will be helpful. A reevaluation for above mentioned conditions may help. I hope it helps.
Take care and regards!
