I am 20 y/o. I had broken down at work twice, first time I got really dizzy and really didnt know what was the matter with me. The second time I was working outside the store that i worked at and came in after being outside for 2 hrs, I went to the office and sat down feeling very wore out and thirsty. My face ended up being flushed. I called a family member to come and pick me up to take me to the ER. My mother told me that I was red as a beet. I drank nearly 2 bottles of water while being all wore out and everything. I ended up having to be rolled out to the vehicle in a desk chair, because I was afraid if I tried to walk I would pass out. For a couple of days around this time I keep feeling that I just wasnt absorbing fluid, like it was just passing through.
The ER doctor the first time said that I was dehydrated and sent me home. But the second time, which I commented about above, the same doctor still said that i was dehydrated. However, the doctor gave me couple other tests such as urine and ekg just in case. I also had two bags of fluids while i was there. Ever since I have gotten mentally unstable, worrying bout everything. Wondering if there could something else wrong. After the second trip I stayed at my parents for 3 days and rested. The doctor also gave me potassium pills, because i complained about cramps. But I was so worried. For sometime afterwards I didn't want to be alone by myself, afraid something would happen to me.
Then I started talking to my chiropractor/nutritionist about it and he gave me supplements to boost the adrenal glands. This actually worked. However a couple of times while driving, thinking of bad things that could happen I had a couple anxiety attacks. One so severe that my finger tips tingled as well as my head, also had breathing trouble. I ended having to call my mother and have her to calm me down.
Now Im still one supplements from my chiropractor/nutritionist and i am feeling much better almost like im normal again, but not quite yet. I have been like this for 4-5 months.
I want to know if anyone can relate to the way I have felt? I still have a little bit of anxiety problems, I just cannot avoid them altogether. I average one about every 2-3 days. Any comments or help would be helpful
