Last Sunday I fainted at work...
Before that occurred, I started seeing spots which turned into flashing lights then turning into blurry tunnel vision. Next thing I knew my vision was closing into darkness, my hands became numb and I knew what was going to happen next. I got on my hands and knees and then I was O U T. I've had a few incidents in the past where I would faint due to getting over-heated.
The rest of the evening was fine. I pounded back some water, finished work and went home.
But the next couple of days I felt so weak and wanted to sleep A LOT.
I felt better Wednesday and decided to go to my boot camp work out.
As soon as I got up from doing sit ups it started happening all over again. I didn't want to tell anyone because I was scared to pass out so I just kept trying to talk myself out of it. I seriously battled it out with myself.
Somehow it worked but I had the worst headache once the flashing lights and blurry vision was gone.
The Hubs was upset with me because I didn't tell my instructor (YES, I know idiot.)
We also realized that the last time I fainted, I was 1-2 months pregnant.
I had a First Response test in my *Junk Drawer* and took it.
I paced around the house. On the directions it says it'll take up to five minutes until you can read it. It felt like forever and a day.
Don't get me wrong, I want another baby so so bad... I just wanted to wait at least a couple more months to see what path I'm going down next with my job.
Test = NO.
All the while the Hubs has been telling me, "You're dehydrated. Drink more water."
And I'm thinking, "Come on it's not even that hot outside anymore that can't be it."
I drank a huge bottle of water and the headache disappeared and I was feeling tons better.
GAAA! I hate when the Hubs is right.
I'm just so confused why I didn't have this problem when we were dealing with 100+ hot Summer weather.
Sooo, I downloaded a water app to remind me to drink more water and I shouldn't have any more problems!
All that crazyness mini-panic for nothin'!
Sometimes things in life are just that simple.
