Has anyone heard of coughing during an episode??? My mother recently met someone at the casino of all places. she was sitting next to her, all of a sudden she starting coughing, my mom asked her if she was ok.. She told my mom she had a fainting disorder and coughing made it go away..

Any insight on this one..

I don't know about interrupting fainting, but it's been said that coughing can stop abnormal heart rhythms (i.e., the Valsalva maneuver is similar to the idea of coughing; plug your nose, close your mouth and blow).

I think a more apt description of valsalva would be hold your breath and bear down. ;) Nina
