  • i've had the same problem, i was at a job interview . blacked out, got send to ER, they ran IVs and i still feel like that alot, esp. the next day, maybe its normal. I sat in bed , i felt so dizzy. my husband cooked & made me eat breakfest and drink lots of water! i had a almost near episode when i went walking so i always carry water.
    Good luck!

  • Had to go when I was pregnant, morning sickness was so bad, I was throwing up my stomach lining. Couldn't keep anything down.

  • Yes. I have cyclical vomiting syndrome (it's as great as it sounds) and if it lasts more than a few days i have to go to the hospital.

  • I have heard you should drink gatorade to help you not become dehydrated again.

  • I went in with contractions with my first daughter 3 weeks before the baby was born, but it turned out I was dehydrated and that was what was causing my contractions I was pregnant though. There was one other time I woke up early in the morning thought dh was going to have to take me to the er. TMI, but I was constipated and couldn't go to the bathroom so I took a laxitive it says to take a whole glass of water well I didn't (only a sip to take the pills) and ya now I know why they say to take a whole glass of water lol. I was about to pass out, thought I was going to throw up everything told dh I thought I needed to go to the er. And I would agree with AHINZE because dh said wait before going to the er try drinking some gatorade so he made me some gatorade (we had the packets you mix in water) I drank a whole glass and started to feel better so you might want to try that and see how you feel

  • Sounds like your body needs to recoup. Drink plenty of water and get some rest.

  • about 36 weeks pregnant I got very sick, couldn't even suck an ice cube or take a sip of water without throwing up. They gave me an iv and a shot, and were going to release me but I still wasn't feeling well at all so they kept me for almost 24 hours. It was the most uncomfortable I've ever felt.
