vaso vagal response after injections

From: Denise


I have passed out on two separate occasions after receiving injections. The two different doctors who administered the injections said they had never seen such a severe reaction. In both cases my blood pressure fell extremely low and I hit the floor, injuring myself in the fall. It took several hours of lying down before I was stable enough to leave the Doctor's office and then another two to three days for the dizziness and fatigue to disappear. Both doctor's seemed baffled by the length of time it took me to recover from the incidents. I might also mention that I had very little to eat before both injections. Should I be concerned about this? I would appreciate some recommendations. Thanks, Denise
