I had a baby six months ago. When he was two weeks old I was cleaning my house while he was asleep and my vision got weird I started seeing like waves or something out of my right eye. I felt like I was going to pass out, I called the fire dept. and my blood pressure was high. I didn't go to the hospital then. I went a day later and they said that I was dehydrated or had toxic shock syndrome. They didn't test me for it. I was extremly weak and felt anxious real bad. Well I went to the hospital 3mos. later and they gave me 4 capsules of potassium, it was low and I have no explanation. I am also suffering from anxiety still.
