    Haven't been on here much the past couple of days due to having a friend over but since i've been told to take it easy I thought the best place to stop me from tearing my hair out would be here :D

    was out for food yesterday and before my food came I started feeling ill and it escalated rapidly. I was shaking and my limbs felt like jelly, couldn't even lift my fork or walk well. I was dizzy and felt as though my brain was a few seconds behind my body then I started slurring my speach and my vision was blurred. My friend said I looked like a ghost and was swaying around, I was petrified :(.

    The paramedic eventually arrived and just as he did I was sick everywhere :eek:. Started to feel a tiny bit better so he rushed me in for tests etc and apparently I had a fainting fit :eek: my poor daughter apparently burst into tears after they took me away, must have been horrific for a kid her age to see!! I got home around 8 last night and my oh got the duvet downstairs and went out to buy some pizza as I hadn't eaten and came home with flowers and choccies too :thumbup: his boss told him he had to take the day off too!!

    Feeling a bit sore etc today but much better!

    Oh gosh that's awful ... and especially when you have no control over what's happening ... I hope your daughter will be okay ... you need to get some tests to find out why that happened (could have been a migraine but without the headache?)

    They said they think the fluid/ signals from my brain were being blocked causing a fainting fit. God knows what caused it to happen but I hope I never have to go through it again! I'm gonna buy my daughter a present today, she was so brave and stayed so strong hugging me until she was out of my sight bless her

    They checked my heart and thankfully it was nothing to do with that so they took blood and I'm waiting on the results. By the time I got to hospital most of it was over though so they said it was hard to tell. It took nhs direct an hour to get back to me then I agreed to try an make my own way to hospital but I stood up and got much worse so rang 999 and it took 50mins for the paramedic to arrive as they were overloaded and when he arrived I was being sick and seemed to get better after (probably the climax of it all) and we stayed there for a while before he agreed I was well enough to be moved. Hope it never happens again

    If nothing comes up in the blood it could have been a panic attack. My hubby has had one like that before simular symptoms.
