Yes, I too ONLY pass out if at the hospital or doctor's office. My father calls it 'white coat syndrome'
When I get shots - it's the pinching of the medication going in that make me go out AND at the eye doctor, the eye drops that numb your eyes for whatever test that is - made me as well.
As I have gotten older, I am 26, the episodes have decreased. BUT I have to mentally prepare to go to the doctor now and I can bring myself from having an episode occasionally. When I visit people at the hospital it makes me nervous that I might pass out but I have to mentally prepare myself that all will be well.
Anyway, it sure is great to know that I am not the only one with vaso vagal.
