ValleyGirl94: He LOL’d ‘till he dropped

On the Secretary of State faints thread, ValleyGirl 94 writes of her son fainting during PE class and getting a concussion as a result. When I asked if she learned the reason for his fainting spell she replied:

ValleyGirl94 on December 17 at 10:05 a.m.

The wonderful pediatric neurology and cardiology docs at Sacred Heart did actually come up with the reason for his fainting spell…he was laughing so hard that he slowed his own heartbeat down so much that his blood pressure dropped and caused him to faint. Their Rx for him? Either don’t laugh or remember to breathe when you do :-) I still would like to know what his friend did and/or said to make him laugh so hard. Neither my son or his friend can remember!

Do remember the last time you laughed so hard you felt like you couldn't breathe? What caused your mirth?
