Vaso Vagal Discussion

I have had vaso vagal problems since the first time I ever had a blood draw. About half the time, I pass out, blood pressure drops and sometimes I am very nauseated. I do not have this problem at any other time and most medical personnel are not at all sympathetic with the problem. I have solved it by always lying down for blood draws and then I have no problem. I do not have a problem when I have shots.

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.
