in an ambulance to the hospital yesterday...
My husband and I decided to do a 2 week PSMF diet and started Tuesday. I ate 4 meals of protein and lots of veggies, took a small dose of E/C in the morning, fish oil and drank 3L of water. Our last meal was about 9pm.
Wednesday morning (nothing yet to eat or drink) as I was standing at the kitchen counter getting my son ready for school I felt really nauseaus. I put my head down on my arms and next thing I knew, came to flat on my back on the floor. My husband said my eyes rolled back in my head, I fell hitting my head on the cabinet and I shook for 10-15 seconds. He called 911.
The fire truck, police and ambulance all came and even though I was feeling better, they insisted I go to the ER. I was wearing a bathrobe, hadn't washed my face, brushed my teeth, my legs are hairier than an ewok's right now (shaving is a bitch with a broken finger) - how embarrassing.
They did an ekg, cat scan, blood work and urine test and didn't find anything wrong. I had low blood pressure (which I do normally). I have a history of fainting in my teens and thru college, but haven't in at least 10 years. Nobody seems to know why it happened.
The spot where I hit my head is still pretty sore and I have a headache and feel a little wiped out, but other than that I think I'm ok. I feel bad that I scared the crap out of my husband and worried the kids.
I was so freaking hungry by the time they let me go (around 1pm) I scarfed down a big steak and cheese sub. I think my body really likes carbs lol.
Not sure why I posted, just having a little pity-party I guess. Kinda freaky when I stop and think about it. I broke my pinkie finger 2 weeks ago playing hockey. This afternoon I get my finger checked and will hopefully get a smaller splint so I can go back to work. sigh
