That was a vagal vagal episode. Some types are caused by stress or fear. Next time you have blood drawn make sure you ate ahead of time and tell them you need to lie down to have it done. That with relaxation breathing and relaxing your muscles should take care of it.

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.
