Re: Needle Phobia and V.V.S.

Josh- I also have VVS with seizures that are brought on by anticipation of pain, gross stuff, etc.

I have had this problem since I was about a year old and am currently 37. Seizures are frequently experience- but not every time. I can always tell when I have had a seizure because for the next few days I feel "like I have been run over by an 18-wheeler."

I have been searching for a way to handle these attacks and have not found a lot of information on it. Please let me know what you have found out.
