Why would I be feeling like this after blood tests? Held my breath during blood draw and had to sit back down

In brief: Not uncommon

Feeling dizzy or light headed, or even fainting are not uncommon and do not indicate that any thing is wrong with you, especially, it is no indication of your fortitude.
Now that you know that it is likely to happen to you, plan to rest, preferably, recumbent, for a few minutes, after blood draw.
