Dehydrated and lightheaded

So long story short. At the end of my last period I felt extremely low on blood, I'm always heavy and sometimes I get lightheaded by the middle/end of the cycle. The day after it was over I went to a concert and became so dehydrated I almost passed out. That was a week and a half ago. Since then I have been drinking water, taking vitamins, and such. I went through caffeine withdraws the first 6 days and couldn't take it anymore so I've been drinking coffee with milk. Ever since I almost passed out I haven't been able to wear my glasses much because I'm always disoriented, kind of like being drunk without being drunk? And because of that I not find it hard to drink alcohol. 1 beer feels like 3 beers. 1 shot feels like 3 shots! It's bad. And I've been getting totally random anxiety/panic attacks. Need recommendations on what's wrong with me.
