Write-up: I began feeling weak and fluey around 8:30 or 9:00 pm. I decided to go to sleep around 10, noticed my fingers had turned yellow and lost all circulation. I went downstairs to ask my dad what to do, and immediately felt like I was going to faint. Sat down on a chair and put my head between my legs, but passed out as I was doing so, and fell on the floor. According to onlookers (brother and sister, who is an EMT) I was convulsing and stopped breathing for about thirty seconds, and my eyes were glassy and rolling. I woke up to my sister telling me to breathe. There was blood on the floor (I had hit my face on the way down) and I was trembling uncontrollably and had wet myself. I was awake and aware of my surroundings, and remembered everything up to and including sitting sitting on the chair before I passed out. My brother had called 911 while I was out and an ambulance came within five minutes. The paramedics put me in the ambulance and took me to the hospital (they would have taken me to local except there was risk that it was a seizure, which I guess local isn''t equipped to handle). They measured my vital signs, made IV ports in my arms and drew some blood. My blood pressure was super low and my heart rate was super high, and I had a temperature of 102. When I got to the hospital they put two liters of saline drip into me to rehydrate me, did a CAT scan, and some bloodwork. They discharged me around 3:30 AM on Monday morning, told me to stay hydrated and get a lot of rest. I slept all day yesterday (Monday) and was feverish and weak. By today (Tuesday) I think I have mostly recovered.
