I have no experience in this, I used to be a phlebotomist, so I love watching when I get my blood drawn. My 15 year old sister though, she feels like she's going to pass out in the waiting room, and she does pass out when she gets her blood drawn. Even when she's lying down.
A friend of mine said she has to sing to herself or she will pass out. A dr told my sister to dry this relaxing herb, L Theinine or something like that.
She needs these tests done, and my mom isn't willing to try a third time. What can help her? Does she need a Valium before she goes? Is there something else that can ease her anxiety about it? Please, anyone who has felt like that, please tell me what to do!
