Vaso-vagal reaction

AntiSpam: orange
From: Liz


I have had 2 out of body experiences. Both identical. When I get my blood drawn and they can't seem to get a vein, and are digging forever, that is when I start getting nausious. When I feel the pain of the needle diggin and they are not getting anywhere, then I pass out. Have done that quite a few times. But two of these times as soon as I pass out, it is very terrifying. I awake and remember screaming out loud which the nurse said I did. The reason I screamed is because I had a train coming right at me and also a car wreck happening at the same time with several vehicles.I am also going through a tunnel this whole time really fast whcich is very loud and noisy and very windy. So the whole time it is a whole bunch of terrifying commotion going on as I am traveling through a tunnel. I canno't tell how I am traveling, it is like I am in free air, flying, but not. Just like something has lifted me up and carrying me through the air way too fast. Then I come to and just want to cry, because it is so scarry??? Has any one else had an experience like this. Both times this happened it was identicle.
