Sydney has a little problem.
She has fainted twice at school this year. Once in her woodshop class and once off the risers in her choir class. She has also had several almost passing out episodes, and has passed out other times in the last few years.
Yesterday, Sydney, Hannah and I were shopping at the mall. She tried on a couple of cute skirts and some jeans, and as I was checking out, Sydney disappeared.
I started out of the store while Hannah went to go find Sydney. I thought maybe she was just looking at the clothes, but Hannah found her in the back of the shop near the changing rooms, laying down.
She had no color in her face. She is pale anyway, but she really had no color, except for her freckles. Her skin felt cold, and she was sweaty. It was an actual cold sweat.
She didn't think she passed out, but was not sure. I had her lay down with her knees up, and she rested for a while.
When she felt better, we walked to the food court and bought two different strawberry smoothies to taste-test.
The Strawberry-Julius was the winner.
The problem is, I don't know what to do. When she first passed out at school this year, I took her to the doctor and they ran a full EKG and did a simple neuro exam. They also ran a blood test. Everything checked out fine. They recommended more protein in her diet. I told her she should stop wearing her corset!
I'm a little worried, because it is still happening... On the other hand, when you google 13 year old girl and fainting, it turns out it is a rather common thing. So maybe I shouldn't worry...
I don't know. Sydney is not a weak little girl. She is not afraid of anything. She is strong and fast and full of energy.
Should I ask for a more thorough physical? Any thoughts?
