When I was going through various tests before I was diagnosed with VV, I passed out every time the doc's took my blood. I've been told that I can't donate blood because of this as my blood pressure drops so low. Sorry that I don't have any specific answers for you, but there is a possibilty that it has something to do with your blood pressure.
