I am prone to dizzy spells and I had a particularly bad one today. I can still feel the effects.
As some of you may know, I live with my parents who were sitting in the garden. I didn't sleep much last night either. I was sitting on the floor eating a ready meal as I felt I should eat something, when I felt very sick, shaky and dizzy.
I stood up and opened the window to get a breath of fresh air but it was a very heavy-aired day here today, so that provided no relief. I had to crawl along the floor to my inhaler which was in my handbag, as I was so dizzy.
I stood at the window for a while, drinking small sips of Lucozade, but I got more and more agitated (as I usually do when I feel like that), and I ended up sliding down the wall onto the floor, after a few minutes I tried to stand and go to the stairs to try and shout for my parents but they couldn't hear me (even though they were only 2 metres from the front door, the windows were open and I have a loud voice), so I tried to go back to my room to get my mobile to phone my mum, but I got about a metre away from my room before I collapsed to the floor, where I lay for another few minutes. I was close to tears as I felt so terrible.
I stood up and managed to go to my room, and when I got there, a relative FaceTimed me for a chat. I told her I felt very dizzy and had just collapsed. She said it must be because I haven't ate much, it's very hot and I hadn't slept much (she knows this as I told her a few hours before). She also said I should put on my clothes and go and sit in the garden with my parents for some fresh air. I was close to tears for a second time as everyone was being so nice to me. My mother also realised how ill I was because of the fact I was outside without makeup on which isn't like me. I have dizzy spells frequently, if I get very warm or tired or if I don't eat or drink much, or if I stand, sit or bend too quickly, with the occasional bad one if I have a combination of these things. I had all of these factors today (warm, tired, not ate or drank much). This was a bad one. It was very scary. Thanks for reading.
