I am 27 yrs old. I know I have a very severe case of endometriosis, fibromyalgia, acid reflux disease, and interestrial cystitis. Ive been on a mission to find out what is causing all my pain and discomfort. I get severe headaches that take 12+ hours to go away. The pain from the endo is horrific. About a week ago, I woke in the nite and was thristy. I frequently go to the bathroom all night ranging to 5-8 times. I was standing in my kitchen and fell to the floor with extreme chest pain. I was a weak and managed to get myself back into bed. Then earlier this week, I was taking a shower and must have passed out. I just got down with putting conditioner in my hair and I fell funny in the tub causing it to fill with water. The water woke me up, but I was to weak to stand. I sat there for a while wondering what was wrong this time. I then managed to pull my self out of the tub and grabbed a towel. I sat on the edge of the tub for at least ten minutes waiting for the strange feeling to go away. It scared me and I felt helpless. I have no clue what would cause something like this. I do have a tumor on my neck, positioned at erb's point. I wondered if it had caused such an episode. When I was 17 and a few weeks after I had my daughter, the same sort of thing happened to me. My dad was there and he says it still freaks him out. When he called the emergancy room and reported that I had severe chest pains and weakness. They told him there was nothing to worry about. So having another one of these wierd episodes again is shocking to me. I always get lightheaded walking up stairs. My friends pick on me cause I fall up stairs all the time. I fall down them alot too. All I guess I can really say is that my chest felt like some one jumped on it when I a woke in the tub and I was very weak, disorientated, seen stars. I dont know if I should see a dr or put it off. I dont really like goin to drs and I dont have the money to pay for them.
