First of all, most people are not prone to fainting when they give blood. Secondly, you said that you didn't know you were going to faint. That's fair enough, but you also state that you felt "woozy" and that you thought that you were "going to vomit". I am certain that if you had said to the nurse, "I feel woozy" or "I think I'm going to vomit" she could have had you lie down which would have prevented the fall that broke your nose. It only would have taken you a second. If you didn't know you were going to pass out, how do expect that the nurse would have known?

By the way, there is not an examining table on the face of the earth in any doctor's office that has siderails. The siderails would prevent the doctor from examining patients adequately.

Sectral 200 mg once a day



I am a 28 yr old female I have had VV since Iwas 2 years old In the last 4 years I have been taking Sectral 200 mg once a day and it has made a big difference with VV spells I dont have them nearly as often as I used to only when I get really stressed out. I have learned to take alot of salt intake and drink alot of gatorade and water doing all those it healps a great deal. i know this effects everyone that has it, in a horrible way. I can say it does get better once they find a prescription that reacts well with your body I have tried several other medications and this is the only one that has helped and with the least amount of side effects.I wish everyone the best of luck with this I am really glad to be able to talk with you all about it because of course you all are the ONLY ones to understand and relate to it. It is a hard thing to deal with. Please write to me AT utgirl74@AOL.COM KIM
