dizzy

Well, that made for an interesting day. I had trouble falling asleep last night and then even more trouble waking up this morning. I did make it work on time...with about three seconds to spare :P I wasn't feeling great this morning but I attributed it to cramps. I went for lunch and went up to my favourite park over looking the river so I could get some sun. By the time I got back to the office I was feeling rather light headed. Within a half an hour I was getting really nauseous and starting to feel like throwing up. I decided I couldn't work anymore so I closed all my programs and logged off my computer. When I stood up to get my purse out of my filing cabinet a huge wave of nausea hit me and I put my head down on the top of the filing cabinet. I was starting to black out so I turned to go back to my chair. At that point I did black out momentarily and I think I actually fell down. I made it over to my chair and when I could see straight again I was able to call one of my co-workers down. (My office is at the end of the hall so they didn't know I was going through this) My co-worker immediately took me to the back room, got me an ice pack (because I had broken out in a cold sweat) and helped me lay down. She called my parents and they came and picked me up. I wasn't feeling well enough to drive.

Scary stuff. I've been resting all afternoon. I'm not sure what caused it. My cramps, bad potato salad, low iron, too much sun (we had a picnic for mothers day yesterday and I did burn my shoulders a bit). It's really hard to say. I'm feeling a bit better now. We'll see how the rest of the evening goes.

Oh, and on a happier note? My TMJ seems to be gone. I can chew without a problem and my ear isn't sore at all.
