Hi every one!

Okay i have been feeling crapy for months now and this last week has been really tough.
I woke upi yesturday and had this slight rash then I went to work and came home took a shower and thats when it started.
I was in the shower and started to feel dizzy, my feet felt like they were on fire! ( from being cold then under hot water) I got out of the shower and noticed these tiny little red dots all over my skin. it was like my blood was trying to come out! I had to lay down, my heart felt like it was beating fast and i was shaking, ( I ate earlier that day ) i went into the kitchen and thought maybe i needed some surgar? ( im NOT diabetic) but what else would i have been shaking from? then i had a couple sips of soda and took some advil ( My head was just throbbing) i could feel my heart beat in my head. I sat on the chair and couldnt move! i felt like everything was spinng.
this has only happend to me 2 times before both after being in the shower. but this time the ringing in my ears and the static sound ( like fuzz on a tv ) i heard wasnt there.
I told my mom i think they are miny sezuires.
has any one ever had this before?
and to add to this today my rash is spread all over my body to the point where i think i may need to be seen.. I made a doc appt tommrow and my derm wont be available for antohter week!
some one please help,.

Do you have a 'walk-in' clinic nearby? Can you call your GP? You should be seen soon - don't wait for your derm to return. I know, you probably don't want to see another doctor - but it could be important to be seen while you're experiencing this flare (or whatever it is.)

I live in Minnesota, too. What part of the state are you in?

The shower seems to trigger it? Wow, maybe the showers to hot. When I get bad chills, I draw a a very hot bath. I'm so cold that its never warm enough. My skin to feels like fire though when I get in the water because its cold. After 10-15 min I feel light headed and about to pass out. I get out and go sit in front of the fan, after a short bit I feel OK. I don't take really hot baths anymore. I keep it and my showers the same setting, no matter how cold I feel. So far that has happened again. Please let us know what your doc says, hope your OK. :)
