Fear Of Needles: How to I Conquor it?

I have a desperate fear of needles. I'm not sure if it is as bad as a phobia. However, whenever I nee needles (shots) I get nervous and uncomfortable. The last time I had a needle was back in maybe sixth grade. As soon as they said my name for the needle I froze, my heart beet went really fast and I felt week in the knees. I felt as if I was going to faint. I've tried to avoid getting needles since I was maybe 8, after I had a blood test. The one where they stick a needle in your arm and take blood from it.

I know I'll need to go to another check up one day. I need a way to conquer my fear, a way to relax. So when that time comes, they don't have to strap me to a chair.
