Weird experience after purging

I was staying ta my bfs house for a few days and couldn't purge and whenever I'm home and by myself everything feels so much worse cause it's kind of built up a bit I guess. So once home I ate dinner and some snack and stuff and I think around 2 in the morning I was like "right now is the time" got up and purged. Went back to bed and went on my phone. I started to notice my feet felt weird, kind of like, if you lie on them too long they go kind of numb. So my feel started feeling weird and I was like "awright??" And then my breathing got heavier and I started to feel kind of light headed I guess?? (Tbh I don't know if it was feeling light headed it's never happened before) and I remember I kept looking about as if I didn't know what was going on (like if u can imagine losing Ur parent in a shop and Ur eyes are pure rolling around) . But in my head I was like "what the fuck lol am I dying" so I sat up and immediately felt worse I thought "I need to eat" so I went down stairs and made a milkshake and got an apple. I felt so completely dead, like I wasn't there. In my head I was panicking like "what's happening am I okay" but my body was moving so slowly and I just felt really strange and weird. It really wasn't normal and it's hard to describe or imagine I guess, like even now I know I haven't described it well enough but I don't know how to. Anyway, any one know what the fuck is going on with that, did I fucking die???? Was it an out of body experience?? Cause I know ED can make people feel really out of it or disassociate. But, this was like that but also a combo of retardation lol. Anyway please help idk what was wrong it's not happened before or ever again.

Kuromi14; Forgive me, I just saw this thread mentioned in the side bar and something got my curiosity.

I know absolutely nothing about the conditions covered on this board. I normally keep my nose out of other peoples business.

But, that just smacks of something, to me. Ye root causative thing. What ever that entails? Forget it, for a moment.

The entire repertoire of symptoms ye describe though? Doesn't that sound like a Blood Pressure issue?

Either way; Better to ask a GP than a random bunch of heed the ballers on the internet.

Sounds like electrolyte issues (which can be very dangerous). As stopping purging is hard, you may want to look into replenishing electrolytes with supplements after throwing up.

Sounds like low blood sugar/ and or low blood pressure. Did the milkshake and apple make you feel better?
