I was at work (I start at 7:30) and started feeling funny while doing
microscope work around 9. I went to break at 9:15 and after going up
some stairs, almost passed out in the cafeteria. I couldn't see,
everything was black, and felt like I was going down. I sat at the
table for a while, tried to eat something, but felt nauseous so
couldn't...then had my coworkers bring me to the break room. After
drinking water, OJ and eating a tiny bit, I still wasn't feeling good so
I went to the ER. I was there all day. Everything came back normal,
except for a slightly low pulse, which is hereditary and I've always had
it. The doc thinks that my low pulse, with blood volume increasing
like it does in pregnancy, is what caused it - my body couldn't keep
up. I got an IV. I was sent home, but I still felt sort of weird. I
am home now, and feel ok, but I am worried because I don't want that to
happen again. It was so scary! This happened twice before but only
during pregnancy, but never this bad. Has anyone else experienced this
before? I am anemic, but its getting better because I am taking iron
now. So weird. I'm also scared that they are going to put my on bed
rest if these almost fainting episodes keep happening. ggrr.
