Yes, many people faint when they see blood or anything else that upsets them. There is no answer that I am aware of why this happens to some people and not others. Check with your doctor to see if there is some medication. They are treating some with zoloft but not sure if you fit the criteria. Your fainting is a vasovagal reflex.....I think. Talk to your doctor and let us know how it goes.

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.
