college student with vvs

I'm a college student and I have vvs, and it's really frustrating when I faint and people don't know what to do. Yesterday I had that happen and they called the ambulance. My RA, who is a nursing major, tried pain stimuli on me, but I never respond to that. Does anyone else not respond to pain stimuli or am I just weird that way? I'm usually able to monitor and control it pretty well, but once in a while something happens and I pass out. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can tell people to do if this happens in the future?
