Here's an excellent resource on needlephobia and what solutions are availible for treatment/management: http://www.needlephobia.com

Adverse reactions to routine needle sticks that are called needlephobia (you don't need an active fear of needles just a reaction physically to have needlephobia):
Fainting or near fainting
Vomitting
Hyperalgesia (abnormally high levels of pain from a negative stimulus)
In rare cases, seizures

I believe this is a component of my fibromyalgia but given all I have read about low blood volumes in pwc I can see mecfs being a related component too. It doesn't help that they draw blood from near a trigger point for FM
