Am I sick? Well, no, probably not...
I am getting dehydrated to a point where I'm concerned, though. This post is mostly for venting purposes, I dont care if anyone reads it.

The "I tried to make a TL;DR version but I talk too much" version:

-instructed by my doctor to stop my meds for my palpitations for 48 hours to wear one of those little monitors
-a little over 24 hours in I had some rather extreme symptoms that I even thought I might be having a heart attack, most likely it was a panic attack
-back on my meds but there might be an adjustment period for my body again
again
-yesterday felt pretty bad like a mild version of when I was off the meds
-been dehydrated this WHOLE time
-woke up today and realized I'm like, REALLY dehydrated
-felt like I was going to collapse
-sat down and drank an entire bottle of water in 10 minutes which lowkey makes me feel like I'm going to throw up
-debating just going to a hospital and seeing if they'll give me an IV for like 30 mins, but uh in these covid times, I think I'll try to drink fluids first....

If you don't feel as though you are going to die, just drink some water and do what the doctor told you....... um I can't really judge anything from here, and I am not a "professional".So take my advice with a grain of salt... If you feel as though you are going to die, go to the hospital.

I guess I'll add in the detail that when I felt like I was having a heart attack/panic attack it was literally while I was driving to the hospital for the monitor, so half of it was going on while I was sitting in the waiting room of cardiology 😂

Sadly by the time I got the monitor, it was mostly over with ak it wasnt recorded. Luckily I didnt have another episode that extreme. The nurse guy that hooked me up could even tell I was feeling terrible but he gave me some comfort about it.

When something like that happens I usually use Samsung health to monitor my pulse. These were taken mostly while sitting in the waiting room.

Just sipping little tiny sips every few minutes should help a lot ❤ I hope you feel better soon!
I know you've said you're chronically dehydrated but was there a reason you're extra dehydrated today? Because you've been feeling too bad to drink much?
Also, I totally thought my first panic attack was a heart attack or something, and I panicked and went to the hospital (this was like, around 10 years ago). Overall a very awful experience so you have my sympathy there 💔

I think a big reason was because I had to leave the house multiple days in a row, so I tend not to drink a lot before I leave so I dont have to stop to use the restroom a lot. :normanheadscratch:
Work on tuesday, drank fluids at work but noticed in the evening I was getting dehydrated.
Dentist wednesday.
Two doctor appointments thursday, the morning one my pulse was fine but the afternoon one for the holter monitor was after I passed the 24 hr mark so that might be why.
Friday I had to drop off the monitor back at the hospital

I've had a similar experience a few time which is also mostly what prompted me to go to a hospital which lead to my meds. But I have palpitations in general which is the other part of the reason.

Sometimes I can go like 5 or 6 hours into the day and realize I have drank less than a cup of fluids.

Well you're heart has to work harder when your blood gets thicker.... maybe that has something to do with it.

I definitely think its a contributing factor to the severity of it

Panic Attack+Dehydration+High Average BPM = A Bad Day.

I'm sick.


...Sick as in awesome, not sick as in post-apocalyptic epidemic trauma.

That was one of the lines in @Zules' dating website profile that made me want to date her

I've had a sore throat since Sunday morning and have felt lethargic for a couple days longer than that... I had a covid test done today, because I need to get a medical procedure done Thursday and tests are required, so we'll find out if it's that, but it's probably not that? I haven't had any of the telltale symptoms. But ugh I do feel pretty bad and unable to do much... so forgive me if I'm slow on forum/comic responsibilities this week.

I am so sick of everything being a symptom of heart attacks and cancer. 😭 Lmao I think I'm dying literally like 3x a week.

Looks like you are low on the dominance hierarchy. Look out for snakes. Monkeys with snakes. That's what we are. Look out bucko.
