Several factors can trigger this reaction in the body, including excessive heat, intense pain, dehydration, coughing, swallowing, urinating, or bowel movements. Intense emotions, prolonged exercise, standing for a long time, or the sight of a needle or blood can also be triggers. Someone who has experienced fainting in the past should actively avoid their personal triggers.
