Hi everybody I had a horrendous day (Wednesday) I couldn't sleep tossing about then I had to get up to go to the loo could hardly walk staggering about, fell over in the bathroom, managed to get back to bed but I was almost out of it. My husband came in about 3am wanting to know what was up could hardly talk so he rang for an ambulance they came. Blacked out in the ambulance before we got going frightened ambulance men and my hubby I don.t really know what happens because I am out of it It has happened before about 18 months ago but hubby says I go rigid and staring and twitchy, got on the way to hospital was sick 3 times all over everywhere. the last time I had these blackouts I had 3 in 24 hours the last one was in the hospital frightened all the nurses. They did all sorts of test including a brain scan with no untoward results. A cardioologist at the hospital concluded that it was caused by overmedication just prior to this my GP had put me on Doxidozin BP pills, the cardiologist took me off of those and said to me not to take any strong medication for my BP because it wasn.t that bad as he had me on 24 hour 4 hourly BP checks.so he knew the situation he said it was all down to white coat syndrome. Anyway a very nice young lady doctor at the hospital said what happened would be caused by a combination of the water infection and the nitrofurantoin but also I must take them get rid of the infection. she also said that my GP hadn,t given me enough so she gave me some more. I feel a lot better today still a bit doddery but basically getting there. Wendy
