I went to the emergency room last night

So I almost passed out and I’ve been having problems with my blood pressure lately so I got really scared. My sister told me I should probably go get checked. They did an EKG just to be safe and checked my blood sugar. Both were fine. I got a little dizzy when I was standing up and the Dr. thought it seemed like dehydration. So they had me drink a bunch of water and I told them I was feeling better so I could go home. But I wasn’t feeling better until I woke up this morning. My son said it takes awhile to rehydrate. The Dr. said to make sure to drink plenty of water and lay off the soda for the rest of the heatwave. It’s expected to be over 100 degrees for the next 3 days.

I took cymbalta for a while and it caused me to have high heart rate. When i used to wake up in the morning on cymbalta my heart was acting if i was running

Sorry. My mom had to go to the hospital for the same reason during a heatwave a few weeks ago. Do you have AC?

Yes, for sure take it easy! Bring on the movies and toffee crunch popcorn. What we watching? I’m watching a trashy real housewives type show. They are taking it off the site soon, so I have to binge watch. Join me, join the dark and twisted side. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

There is stuff called Pedialyte, also 7/11 has this stuff called electrolit, that stuff rehydrates your body faster than any other liquid, maybe buy a few and keep them in case you start to get dizzy again, glad you are ok.

I know, and normally I drink more but for some reason I drank root beer instead and it made me sick.

You probably want to eat some food during your hydration process to get electrolytes. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Get some Pedialyte and take it easy.

We are going through a heat wave here where I live too.

Going to take things slow for a while.
