Im sorry to hear about your wife. Considering that she has low blood pressure as well as low blood sugar that is a clear indication that you need to take her to the ER. The low blood pressure is very likely due to severe dehydration. This would also cause loss of potassium from the body which can lead to the anxious feeling in her legs as well as weakness and in severe cases temporary paralysis. While gatorade would be useful but since she is throwing up everything and cant take anything , she needs IV fluids. If you could take orally gatorade at home then she would have been fine. But at the moment she needs togo to the ER or urgent care center for IV fluids and a evaluation. She might also need IV anti emetic drugs to control the vomiting. I would urge you to take her to the ER as soon as possible as low blood pressure and low blood sugar can be dangerous.
