Why did an iv almost make me pass out?
A nurse at the hospital was putting an IV in and my veins are always difficult so she had a hard time, she kept digging for a while and I got light headed, like really really light headed I told her and she had to take it out I feel so bad because she said sorry but it’s not like it’s her fault. I’ve gotten blood drawn, ivs in, and this has never happened why did it happen that time?

Having a parasympathetic reaction and over stimulation of the vagus nerve aka going vagal. Basically your body freaked out so instead of sh!tting yourself your body said alight im head out....

Its called a vaso-vagal reaction and its very common.
