This has never happened before. I felt suddenly hot. I have no real medical conditions

OK. You mentioned feeling like you were going to pass out--can you describe that a bit more for me?

very hot, couldn't focus, very shaky

Sorry for the delay. There are a few possibilities here. One would be low blood sugar although the orange juice should have temporarily helped that. Another could have been a sudden rapid heart rate from something called supraventricular tachycardia. Finally, it possibly could have been a transient ischemic attack--a threatened stroke. I can't be certain about what happened but you need to get to an emergency room right away to have all those possibilities checked out
