Last night I was over at my mother's house, helping her with dinner and all of a sudden I felt nauseas. I felt like I needed to get to the bathroom fast afraid I was going to vomit. I ran upstairs and sat down, didn't vomit, but just felt super dizzy. I stood up, splashed some water on my face and I felt the blood rushing to my head and I immediately sat back down on the bathroom floor thinking I was going to throw up and/or pass out. It was all I could do to yell to my mother to get upstairs. I really thought I was going to pass out. My head was ringing, I couldn't focus, and I was drenched in sweat in about 60 seconds. My mother said I looked yellow and then gray. Then I felt like I needed to sit up and my mom brought me a bucket. I didn't have anything strange to eat. Turkey sandwich at lunch, banana around 5p and this happened at 7p. I did gag a few times and threw up a little, mostly by making myself so that I would feel better. My head was just spinning. It lasted about 10 minutes until I felt like I could hear again, see again and get to the guest room to lie down. I felt ok after that, a little weak, but at work today and feel fine. I have never experienced anything like that before. My neighbor is a nurse and said it could be my blood sugar? I made an appointment to see the doctor later this week. Has anyone ever felt this before?
I have normally low blood pressure 90/60 almost always. I'm 34, in pretty good shape, eat clean, etc....I have had some vertigo in the last few months, but what happened the other night really scared me. I felt like I was fighting to stay conscious. So, has that whole drenched in sweat, disoriented, nauseas thing happened to you before? I'm going to the dr in a few days...
Did you ever find out what caused that faint/sweaty incident at your Mom's house? The same thing happened to me last night... very scary and I live alone and almost called 911. After some water and sitting quietly for about 30 minutes I was ok. Just wondering if there is something else I can look for. Thanks.
