I woke up at 6am to feed the dogs, and as I was bending down to put their food cup back into the bin, it felt like I had horrible heartburn and then like I lost control of all of my muscles. I was on my knees on the ground, and honestly, I can't tell you if my arms and legs were moving, or if they were just spazing inside, but I couldn't move. I got myself back to sitting, sweating profusely, but was so dizzy and lightheaded I saw intricate lights when i opened my eyes. I don't know how long I sat there, but I ended up lying on the ground for a bit and at some point made it back to bed.
I live alone and my cell phone wasn't near me, so there was no one to call. I woke up again at 8:30 and felt totally fine. Urgent care wasn't open today, so my only doctor option was the ER, which, honestly, felt excessive at that point.
I generally have low blood pressure and get really lightheaded and dizzy when I stand too quickly, so I wasn't sure if that could be behind what happened, like the bending down and up threw my equilibrium off.
What would you do? Would you just call the doctor in the morning? Or just go to the doctor in the morning? It's just so weird how it happened and then i was fine. And this is one of the things that worry me about living alone.
