So for the past 2 weeks I have fallen track. Yesterday I decided to pick myself back up and start over. While at work, just after I ate my lunch, I started feeling dizzy. So I got up and went to get some water, thinking that I would be ok. Well I felt worse, like I was going to pass out. I immediately told my coworkers that I was not feeling well. I had a slight chest pain, my heart was beating, my hands shaking, I couldn't catch my breath, the room was spinning, and I started getting tingling sensations throughout my body. I am 34 yrs old and my coworkers are all my seniors who seem to have had every ailment at least once. They immediately offered to call 911, which I declined. They weren't sure if I was having a stroke, panic attack or if I had vertigo. After about a half hour, I started feeling better, although not 100%.
That was a very scary wake up call. I thought about my 4 kids and my brother who I lost to diabetes just over a year ago. I'm calling a doctor today. I need to get an examine. My family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer.
That was my wake up call to take a more serious approach and to stay on track.
