Even though identical twins were more likely to report outside triggers for their attacks, it wasn't always the same trigger for both twins, Berkovic says.
But puzzlingly, people sometimes black out in response to some kind of outside the body trigger, like the sight of blood or after some kind of emotional upset. This is called vasovagal syncope.

The Genetic LinkResearchers in Australia interviewed 51 same sex sets of twins for the study. Some of the twins were identical. The others were fraternal twins. At least one twin in each pair reported passing out at some point in their lives.
The frequency of fainting among non twin relatives in the same family was much lower, suggesting a complex interaction between many genes that all have to be inherited together, rather than just one or two.
Researchers found that both members of a set of identical twins were more than twice as likely to be prone to fainting spells compared to fraternal twins. Their fainting was also Louis Vuitton Sunglasses Men 2018

Fortunately, fainting isn't usually dangerous. Most people usually wake up a few seconds after they pass out, but they may fall in the process. Falling during a fainting spell, however, can lead to injuries.
