Hi Sue, Sounds like you know what causes your daughters fainting. Having blood drawn etc. Try not to worry about her everyday life, just be aware of what you already know are her triggers for fainting. My daughter used to do the same thing as a child. She is now an adult with kids of her own. She has not had a fainting spell for many, many years. The last thing you want to do is have your daughter pick up that you are scared for her. You went to an excellant place to have her tested. Been there myself. Hope this helps.
