My daughter has had 3 episodes in the last year. The first one was when she attempted to donate blood for the first time. The second was when she was having blood drawn for tests. And the third was 2 days ago at a blood drive at school. The first two times the needle had already been inserted but this last time they only pricked her finger. We talked to her doctor several days before the blood drive and told her about the incidences and that's when we found out about vaso vagal. The doctor said it was nothing to be concerned about but of course we are . She is 18 and plans to go to nursing school so this v-v is of concern to us. Any thoughts, suggestions, help?
