So I'm well into college now, and boy is it stressful!
Honestly, sometimes I just want to curl up and cry because I'm never feeling well. I have ridiculous headaches, digusting gas and bloating, horrible rectal pain when I have a BM, contant fatigue and body pains, and recently, I've been randomly fainting!
Three nights ago, I was in the main building on campus, which has marble floors. Completely out of nowhere, I blink and all of a sudden I'm on the ground with a HORRIBLE headache. People are looking at me weirdly and totally freaking out. I opted out of going to the ER (I have such anxiety over doctors) but went to my health center yesterday and they said I have a concussion for sure but now I have to go to the hospital for a head CT scan.
Also, two weeks ago, I was in the gym and passed out, but this time I didn't wake up until I was in an ambulance! They took my blood sugar and it was 35 which was ridiculously low. Has anything like this ever happened to anyone?
I've seen a cardiologist who said its not my heart that's the problem so next is an endocrinologist then a nuerologist.
Sorry for ranting and raving, but I'm just tired of all this. I've been so many classes and assignments because of all the health issues and am honestly getting scared its going to turn out being one of those things that just happens for no known reason.
Fainting is scary though :(
Thanks for reading everyone, I hope you are all doing well!!!
