2013 hasn't been off to a good start for me at all.
After a beyond stressful work week 2 weekends ago, I decided to take a nice long hot bubble bath to help relax. During it, I got this overwhelming hot feeling and something told me I needed to get out of the bath. I remember getting out-- but nothing after that. I blacked out for some time and woke up laying on my bathroom floor. I banged up my face and knee pretty badly.
Initial trip to the ER I was told I was dehydrated. They put me on an IV for a few hours, did an xray on my knee (and a bunch of other test) and sent me on my way. I couldn't get a dr appt until Friday (almost a whole week later), so I just made sure to drink at least 100 oz of water a day-- but i still felt like i was going to pass out through out the week.
Meanwhile, Xray tech from the ER called and said they relooked at my xrays, and for me to keep a close eye on my knee because it looked like i might have torn my tendon. Not exactly the phone call that I wanted!
Had a lot of test done at dr appt friday, and everything came back normal. The problem is that my blood pressure it getting too low, and the cause is unknown. Dr suggested I add more salt to my diet-- which i have, and am slowly starting to feel better :)
As far as my knee-- it def feels funky :( I'm not in pain all the time, it comes and goes... just have huge high hopes that i didn't really mess it up.
Eating super healthy and exercising has taken the back burner until i feel better! Hope it will be sooner than later!
