Need prayers don't know what's wrong! fell, dizzy, tingle, sensitive head

So i've been in bed for the last 2 days and have had some time to think of several weird things that occurred prior to my big fall, 2 days ago. i apology for not proof-reading, not feeling well.


Strangely, 2 days ago i suddenly woke up at 2am and had to use to the bathroom. I say strangely because i use the restroom before going to sleep and its weird since i just went to sleep 3 hours earlier that i suddenly woke up from a deep sleep and immediately rushed to the bathroom. I remember while taking a tinkle i felt very dizzy. I remember telling myself to hurry up (hurry up tinkling because i was very dizzy) next thing you know i heard a very loud pound and i'm getting up off my bathroom floor. It appears since my head has a bump and i fell to the right, the only thing my head could've hit would've been my chrome door knob.

So I stumble to back to my bed, then I get on my knees to pray, then I went to get me some orange juice.

To make a long story short, I lay in bed for the next 7 or 8 hours before I could go to sleep. I wake up, go to bathroom, feeling slightly dizzy but nothing like when I fell. I heat up some food and lay in my bed and ate. To bypass so much, I ended up laying in bed for the next 16 hours, eating on 7 different times (i don't usually eat like this, and it seems to never fill me up for long). Anyhow I seem to be urinating more frequent.


These are the weird things that i had noticed 2 days before the bathroom fall.

i woke up weds morning after 9 hours of sleep and couldn't stop stretching. My left and right arms felt so fatigue'd, i must have stretched for over an hour with no luck. I stayed in shower for hour just letting the warm water try to massage my shoulders. I must have drunk, 5 cups of apple juice and water because i felt somewhat dehydrated.

Anyways after a couple hours i felt better, went to the grocery store, came back home ate, talked on phone, etc..While in my chair on computer looking for a job, I noticed my wrists tingling, i lifted and it felt weak. But, the tingle went a way pretty quick. Then while drinking some orange juice i noticed a horrible smell...i thought it was coming from my apartment i opened the window, but it seems it may have been coming from my breath.

Really feeling drowsy but needing to be up and focused to find a job, i took a 20mg adderall. I stayed up for another few hours, then ate some chicken paddies before going to bed. I hadn't drunk a soda in months, soda had been making me sleepy. But, I couldn't resist getting soda this day. Besides if i drink before bed, i'll just sleep better!

This leads me to the big fall, i suddenly woke up, put on my house shoes and noticed my right foot had the same tingling my left foot had earlier that day. But, it appeared a little sharper, sort of like a mild cramp and somebody was shocking me. It continued as I used the restroom and i haven't felt it since i got from my fall.

The only other unusual things I can think of is....maybe a week ago, while scratching my head, I noticed my head was super sensitive in certain spots. There doesn't appear to me any lumps or cuts, but i rub my head in certain spots and it feels like there some kind of damage under my hair and skin. It still feels like that right now. 2 days after my fall the only strange things i can notice is my sensitive head, mild to dizzyness, and stiff feelings in my upperbody...but maybe that's from being in bed for 2 days straight.

i'm 32, male, moderate alcohol use, the only drugs i'm prescribed ritalin 10mg but adderall has always done wonders for me. So I have purchased on my own. Since my money has been low, i've been doing 20 to 35mg adderall a day. I knew i didn't have money for anymore, so I begain substituting with ritalin. The morning before my fall i took 20mg ritalin, 10 hours later i took 20mg adderall. When I was working 14 hours a day, I had taken way more of the 2 so I don't think the amount I took on this day was a lot and I hadn't mixed the 2 in 3 weeks. And hadn't took an abusive dose, i only took 20mg ritalin that morning because i felt so drowsy after more than 8 hours sleep. Nevertheless I hope I never have to take adderall or ritalin again.

Anyone have any clue on what is going on with me? I have no insurance, already owe the hospital thousands after a car accident, currently unemployed, i've been thinking about all my bills in bed, getting very depressed. Thanks for your prayers and help.

Re: Need prayers don't know what's wrong! fell,dizzy,tingle, sensitive head

First, get a blood-sugar test to make sure you don't have diabetes. It could possibly cause every symptom you describe, including the excessive hunger, thirst, fatigue after drinking soda, dizziness, and tingling. If you don't want to pay for a doctor's appointment yet, go buy a generic meter at the pharmacy or big chain store - make sure you get one that comes with sample test strips (they often include 10). That's enough to test your bloodsugar right now, before you go to bed, and first thing in the morning when you wake up. If any of those readings seem unusual GO TO THE DOCTORS ASAP.

Re: Need prayers don't know what's wrong! fell, dizzy, tingle, sensitive head

thanks kaji, after everything happened i became so worried, looking online, that my symptoms could be heart attack or stroke. But, it sounds more like blood sugar? 320z of fruit punch soda could cause that? i hadn't had a soda or anything sweet in months.

I'm going to hospital in morning, i was trying to put it off, but i'm too worried. The only hospital in my area that takes non-insured, if i go now, i'll be in the waiting area for several hours and i can't even imagine sitting in a chair for that long, so i'll try going early morning.

I think it might be blood sugar related. It could be you are a diabetic and haven't found out..And now your having a high sugar reaction. Thirst,frequent urination,hungry,dizzy,tired, spacey mentally.All point to Diabetics get someplace ASAP and get your blood sugar tested...You can lose consciousness..

Re: Need prayers don't know what's wrong! fell, dizzy, tingle, sensitive head

thanks for your reply, with no insurance i sat in hospital waiting room for 9 hours before seeing a doctor and my friends asked why i waited so long before going...i was hoping i'd get better, i wanted to avoid that long wait.

they ran ekg, blood work, urine work, ct scans, etc....everything came out good....except...high amount of sodium in urine. he believes its some rare disease that some get after hitting their heads. I googled sodium in urine and diabetes came up. He says he doesn't think diabetes, my blood sugar wouldn't have looked that good, nothing in any of the test points at diabetes. But, all the signs i had come up in diabetes and diabetes runs in my family. Then me drinking that fruit punch soda hours before my fall. I go back in a couple days and they'll run more test on my urine.
