That happened to my mom. The final verdict was she was dehydrated from drinking too much green tea and not enough water. I'm prone to anemia too, but it is thankfully easy to fix!

Hope you heal up quickly!

Oh dear! That was way more adventure than you wanted. I hope you have a couple of restful, iron-rich days and that you're feeling much, much better overall very soon!

Yikes, WN, glad you're ok! Keep us posted on the diagnosis!

Good lord, honey! No more of that, you hear?

D. has for years claimed that I should go around in a full-body oven mitt to protect myself from all of the ways I manage to get hurt, and now she's threatening to make me wear a helmet the next time I go to the store!

Oh my! Well, if it *is* anemia, and it turns out that treating it *does* treat your other problems, then that's good news...although, as you say, there are surely easier ways to find such things out, right?

Glad you're feeling OK! That's a scary adventure.

Ack! That sounds scary! I hope it is anemia, because I think you're right that it's fairly treatable.

I hope you feel much better quickly!

I'm glad you are, in the end, OK. But there is no drag draggier than an ER visit. I hope it is anemia and fixes all those ailments. Perhaps I'll get my iron checked too!

Oh my goodness! Poor you - what a distressing experience! So glad you're ultimately okay. (Staples! Ouch!)

And I'm betting they EMTs call guys "buddy." I have no evidence for this, it's just a guess.

Oh my! I'm so glad you are now OK.

Politica had anemia that got diagnosed shortly after we started dating. It was an excellent diagnosis b/c it's a problem that--for her, anyway--was easily fixed and made the symptoms so much better so quickly. Hope you are OK soon too.

Oh no! I'm so glad you're okay, and hope that any bigger issues are easily and speedily addressed.

Nice show on the parts of Costco & the EMT.

I'm so glad that you are alright. When you are caught up on grading and such, you might consider writing a note to the hospital admin with a cc: to the head of the ER dept. I'm sure that MANY people have similar reactions to the crucifix on the wall, and they need to know that. (They also should know that the ER staff did an excellent job of overcoming the catholic discomfort).
