26 year old Vasol Vagal heart stopping

Probably stress or something no biggie. Well they wanted to hook up an IV to give me some pain medicine and to draw blood. No big deal .. well I guess I am a big wuss or something because I passed out. When I passed out my heart stopped for 10 seconds! I wake up and my room attendance quickly jumped from one RN putting an IV to 20 people with electric paddles in their hands. I woke up and felt fine though. The Dr. was really anxious to get another IV in just in case but I made him wait because I couldn't make a decision like right away under that pressure. Eventually the Dr. did put a smaller IV in and everything was. What gives...
