QUESTION} Im not sure if i just fell asleep or if it is

Customer Question

QUESTION} Im not sure if i just fell asleep or if it is something worse. I was at work. Tired at first but after a few hours I was wide awake. At about 3am i started feeling a bit drowsy. But at work i have a small office/booth. Apparently after doing some work i went in there and sat down and fell asleep. Then was woken up by a co worker.
The thing is that i don't really remember going in there sitting down and falling asleep. Normally i progress into it. Then stand up and start walking around to wake myself once i feel like i may fall asleep. But when i was woken up i was extremely dizzy. Disoriented. Vision was weird and i wanted to throw up but kept myself from it. I felt that way for a couple hours slowly feeling better. But even now 12 hours later i still feel weird.

This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are not feeling well

you could be battling an oncoming cold or virus.

you could be extremely fatigued or dehydrated.

or it could be something else

do you have excessive anxiety or worry symptoms? this can make you worried about how you are feeling.

if you are not feeling like yourself, you can always go to the ER and see a doctor right away and get checked out at the ER by a doctor who can do blood tests for you.

do you have a hospital or ER close to you where you can be seen right away?

I was having some stess and anxiety beforehand. And i have been drinking plenty of water. A bit more than 2 QT at that point in a matter of 12 hours i would say. I might just need to increase the amount i drink.

it sounds like your stress and anxiety is getting the best of you.

excessive anxiety can cause dizziness and disorientation

you should talk to your doctor about treatment to help decrease your anxiety symptoms
