Ok... so I am in my second year at a private college taking my required classes to get into the nursing school. Last weekend, I went with my boyfriend to urgent care because his brother had a severe nose bleed that had lasted for about 2-3 hours. He lost a lot of blood... it was so bad that it was runny down his throat and making him gag while trying to spit it out in a cup. Anyway, I watched the doctor instert a "nasal rocket" (what the doctor called it) into his nose. Then he said it would have to be left in for 3 days... etc. Well, as he was finishing up I started to feel a little dizzy and my legs felt limp. My vision went fuzzy, my ears were ringing, I started sweating, and I felt like I was going to throw up or pass out. I barely made it out of there on my feet and went to the bathroom incase I did throw up. Then I went outside to get some fresh air and I felt much better. I'm just wondering why this happened because I've seen this kind of stuff before... for example, I'm taking Anatomy and we have been studying off the cadaver, I've seen people bleeding and watched them get stitches. It's just very strange to me. I felt the same way as I did when I went into shock after I had knee surgery and ended up throwing up. I'm just wondering if this will be a problem when I get into nursing school and start doing clinicals or when I get through nursing school and am taking care of patients. Any advice would be great!!
Thanks for reading this I know it's long
