I hope you are feeling better now, but please take this into account. Heat exhaustion is nothing to brush off. We’ve had over 14 people die in this area within the past week of heat-related issues, so if you think the heat is affecting you to the point of making you pass out. Next time PLEASE go see a doctor. The heat CAN kill you.

Probably nothing to worry about.  I had a massive blood clot and a few months later I fainted.  I was paranoid I had a piece break off and either go into my lung so I couldn’t get air all of a sudden or it went to my brain.  I called my doctor and she said it could be caused by a million different things and only worry if it happened again.  By The Way – she also said if either of the two had happened, I never would have gotten back up…  We tend to always go to the worst case scenerio.

Ok, I’m going to be stern with you because I care! C Difficile is going around and the symptoms you described are part of the list of symptoms for C Difficile. So if you continue to feel them or feel them again soon, just get your ass in the car and go to a clinic, please!

Also, did you find telehealth helpful? I have called them in the past and their only answer is to go see a doctor. (Because they can’t be liable if they give you other medical advice without telling you to see a doctor. In my opinion, it’s such a waste of our tax dollars!)

Be careful with your health hon!

The first thing I thought was pregnancy, but since you haven’t seen your Fiance in six weeks (and I’m assuming you’ve had a period since), it most likely isn’t that.  Even though the show, “I didn’t know I was pregnant” has me skeptical, lol!  Just go to the urgent care or emergency room.  See if someone else can drive you there?  You need to get a diagnosis because something definitely is the matter.  I’ve fainted in my lifetime, but never more than once in a day.  Please go see a medical professional just in case this is something serious.

@Oneeleven:  I USED to be a major under-reacter too.  Which is how the blood clot ended up from calf all the way into my abdomin…  Anyway, 3 years post-clot I am starting to under-react again.
