    Seriously I was bathing and I layed there for like 2 mins... until when I got up I just couldn't think. I was shaking and I felt so tired. My body was about to collapse and I felt like I was losing my vision. I went to my room and I just sat on the chair and I was just like.... so drowsy.

    Has this happened to anyone before? I felt really blind today.

    Sounds normalish, like a bad headrush. I'm going to get a milder version in a couple of minutes when I put my laptop down and stand up.

    I get that quite a lot. I went to the docs about it years ago and they said it's asthma?! But I don't know if that's just cos they didn't know what it was, but I do get breathing problems with it sometimes, like I'm in the bath then sometimes it feels like my chest gets really tight and I can't take a full breath - do you get that?

    Also, what will help is make sure the room isn't steamy and the water isn't too hot.

    Yeah I got that. The bathroom was steamy though like the mirrors and steam was rising from the bath. I felt like I was going to die. Literally.

    because over time your body can take hotter and hotter water, like your hands wont feel water thats hot hot where as your feet will feel the same water as hot hot hot


    make sense?

    No, don't worry. Everyone gets headrushes. I get them quite frequently when getting out of a bath. I even get them sometimes when I stand up from a chair when I've been sitting there for a while.

    Really, really common. It's almost certainly nothing other than vasodilation hypotension.
