About a year ago I had an incident that left me severely debilitated for a long time. I don't remember much of what happened, but at the time I became very ill (possibly swine flu) and ended up losing a ton of weight. During this time I began to get dizzy (24/7), racing heart, anxiety, fatigue, nausea, and tinnitus in my right ear. However, I never experienced Vertigo. After what seemed like an eternity (few months), everything managed to clear up except the tinnitus. My Doctor wasn't sure what had happened, but I figured it was a case of Labyrinthitis due to the Tinnitus and dizziness. Anyway, 10 days ago I was at a party with friends where I had 4 glasses of wine as well as having taken 8mg Ephedrine and some Caffeine a few hours prior for exercising. That evening I felt fine and went to bed as usual. That night I woke up and noticed that my heart was pounding, I felt spacey, and my tinnitus was going crazy. Now, my tinnitus tends to be louder after having a few drinks, but this was different. It was much much louder and there was an additional noise in my left ear (I only have a noise in my right ear usually). This caused me to panic a little, but I managed to get back to sleep.
I woke up the next day feeling like crap, but to my relief the new noise had disappeared. The T was still loud but I just assumed that this was normal from the hangover. Throughout the day I noticed I was really feeling really lightheaded/dizzy and that my heart was racing whenever I moved around and for most of the day. These symptoms are still continuing and I'm starting to wonder if this is the same thing that happened to me a year ago. My heart starts racing when I turn in bed, get up in the morning, for no reason sometimes (This has been getting over the past week) My legs and arms also feel jelly-like, and I feel like my head feels really heavy. I've also been having a stuffy nose and head pressure which could be something else. Again, no vertigo but 24/7 dizziness and feeling weak as if gravity increased. The thought of going through this ordeal again is stressing me out big time, since it took a few months to get back to normal last time.
I went to the Doctor yesterday but he wasn't entirely sure either. He thought that the wine/ephedrine may have triggered an anxiety episode which would account for a lot of the symptoms. I just don't understand why I would still be having these symptoms 10 days later. Christ I don't know what to do. I can't deal with being dizzy for however long again
Edit: I've also been a lot more thirsty since this happened, and need to use the bathroom more frequently. Might be due to the anxiety though...
