I have no clue what I have!

I've been thirsty since it all started, but drinking doesn't make the thirst go away.
I also get dizzy, but not like usual. If I'm standing or walking, it's worse. And it happens like this: I'll be fine but almost every 3 secs or so, I feel faint for a second. It's like I'm hitting patches of faintness. It almost seems like it's in time with my heartbeat.
And my joints (especially my elbows and knees) have been sore.
One last thing: I do have some breathing issues due to anxiety, and it seems like those have gotten a little worse too.
I've had this once before, and cured it after a day of rest and fluids, but I would really like to know what it is.
The only thing I can think of is possibly dehydration because I never get enough to drink anyways.
