Hi all! I am new here but something happened to me today that has happened my whole life and I just would like to hear others take on it.
I am 29. I have quite a few piercings and a lot of tattoos. I fainted one time after a piercing and got light headed after another, but nothing major.
Having said that, every single time I have my blood drawn or have an IV, it's all bad. I was recently diagnosed with PKD and have had a lot of blood tests and a couple IVs in the hospital and during procedures. So you'd think after all that I might have a grip on it, but NOPE! Had my blood drawn today. Had them lean me back, they used a butterfly needle so it didn't hurt at all, finished up, I thought I was fine, they sat me up and BOOM. Ears ringing, tunnel vision, clammy... had to lay down for a few minutes.
Sorry for the novel. I guess I am trying to figure out why this happens when I'm not scared (except of how I feel after) and it doesn't hurt.
