  • Sounds awful. How far have you got with your GP? There's some brilliant information on the STARS website, have a read through on there. You're not alone and there's lots of advice that they give, both things your daughter can try, to help the situation, and depending on the cause, different medication through your doctor. Good luck!

  • Just over 12 months ago I was in a similar position with my then 14 yr old daughter. Thanks to persistence on my part - and a GP and paediatrician who were unswerving in wanting to get to the bottom of it - she has since been diagnosed with RAS (info on the STARS website) and it appears we have it under control with the help of Midodrine. If did help that I videoed several of her faints and fits to show the medics. Best of luck
