    ..passed out at the bloody supermarket earlier !

    I just got back now , grateful that I managed the walk home.

    I was standin flickin through magazines when I started to feel lightheaded and havin trouble breathing. So I joined the checkout queue ( behind a guy who had a packed trolley load of groceries ) and it just got worse.
    I put my bag down and gripped the ledge and concentrated on breathing but every breath I took just felt hopeless : felt like the oxygen just wasnt reaching my lungs.
    My vision started blurring and the room started spinning increasingly faster and I silently willed/pleaded that the checkout chick hurry with the guy in front of me because I was struggling hard to hold onto consiousness and felt like I was gonna lose it any second.

    Finally she got to me , as I continued to grip the counter to stop from swaying.
    She musta thought " Another druggie " :roll: LOL !

    Miraculously , I didnt pass out and made it outside where I sat on the curb beside the road and put my head between my knees. After about half an hour two very nice ppl stopped out of concern and asked me if I wanted water etc but by that time I was feelin better.

    Blame myself for the incident tho. I gave up smokin two years ago and basically lead a healthy lifestyle ; dont smoke , healthy diet , dont drink a lot of alcohol and work out. But in the last two weeks , over Xmas/New Years , I have been smokin and drinkin. My b/f smokes and when he was here I pinched a few , here and there from him thinkin " I'll be right , its only a couple , I wont take it up again ". Uh no .... silly me went and bought a packet after he left... :roll:
    I was going to go back to no smokin tomorrow but this happenin has made this resolve stronger eek !
    It was just scary. :shock:

    Don't mean to sound like a nag, but..... while something like that may be as simple as the stress of the holidays and a few smokes, it may be something more. SEE YOU DR.!!!!

    You haven't been drinking a lot of coffee have you? Sounds a little like caffeine poisoning. I used to get attacks like that but I used to drink five or six pints of the stuff a day. It doesn't sound like dehydration because you normally get a headache with that...
    My advice is don't write it off but go see your Doctor right now. Explain it to him and get him to check you over. It is probably nothing - or nothing serious (a virus perhaps, or stress) - but it is best to be safe. We don't want to loose our favourite tummy-flasher.
    Just out of interest - what was the magazine you were reading. Those top shelf ones can sause a rush of blood to various parts, you know... ;-)

    :hugs: please check up on yourself with the doc.

    When I started going to the Gym, the first 2 nights I passed out after about 10 years of neglecting my body. I think when you start working out... you release of alot unhealthy toxins that have been buried in depths of your tissues .. could be the dang aussie sunshine too. anywho... please take care, missus lumibabes! - or i won't have anybody posting comments in me blog anymore :cry:
