this is very very very common. My sister does the exact same thing. I feel this is the most common form of vaso vagal. You work yourself up knowing that she is taking blood. You know that there is a chance you will pass out, and before you even know for sure wether your gonna pass out or not you talk yourself into it. You are so worried that you will pass out that you can actually make yourself pass out. I know soooo many people that passout while giving blood.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
