Hello.: Hello. I don't know if the doctor would order blood work or not. However, if you are particularly afraid of needles (which many people are), it is important to let you doctor know. One thing you can do to decrease your anxiety is begin deep breathing before you get blood drawn. Breath in slowly and deeply through your nose. Fill your lungs and hold for a count of five and then slowly exhale. Repeat at least 12 times. Take care.
