I once got a shot for Psoriasis in my *head* (well, really scalp) - it
didn't hurt, but the *idea* of it caused me to get tunnel vision, break
out in a cold sweat, and get dizzy...

I sat in the waiting room for a few minutes, then went back to the
receptionist and asked to see a nurse - she took one look at me and
ushered me into a room toot-sweet.

All is fine now, but it was a scary 10-15 minutes. ;^)
