Can I give blood when I'm high risk for fainting? I have an ans disorder - postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and have hr up to 160-170bpm.

Can I give blood when I'm high risk for fainting? I have an ans disorder - postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and have hr up to 160-170bpm.

Best to avoid risk.: Although technically you could give blood, you would be putting yourself at risk for a fainting spell due to your autonomic syndrome. What I mean by that is that there is nothing wrong with your blood, but decreasing your blood volume would increase your risk of having a fainting spell. Do your blood bank phlebotomist a favor and keep your blood to yourself!
