Hello & welcome to Just Answer! If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
Ideally you should be seen by a physician given that you are already extremely drowsy
Since you may slip in to unconsciousness without being aware
and that can be fatal
i was very drowsy this am and early aft. It is now 11 PM and althugh not feeling 100% - alot better than earlier
do you think it was water intoxication?
Yes it is certainly possible,
that electrolyte imbalance due to water intoxication may have contributed to your symptoms
If you are feeling better, then I would advise you to monitor yourself carefully,
would this cause thirstiness as well?
ask a relative / friend to keep in contact with you
and get to the ER/ doctor as needed
is it safe to go to bed?
you can get excessive thirst due to electrolyte imbalance
It ought to be safe to go to bed, if you are feeling better
nmy husband is out of town - am alone in the hoiuse
Of course, avoiding fad diets is the key to preventing these complications :)
17 day diet
good diet - i just drank too much water!
is there anything i should do or take?
you have already taken a diuretic
do not overdo the water,
take a light diet
and get to a doctor as soon as feasible, possibly tomorrow morning if the symptoms persist
ok - thank yu
