Fainting From Fever

My mom is really sick and told me that she had felt like her body was 3000 degrees from the inside out and then fell to her knees and could not move for about 5min. Her doctor wouldn't really discuss it with her because she was really scared about it. What could have caused this? She has broncitus and has been really ill for 4 days and is not getting better. Has meds. And is hoping for some relief in the next couple of days. Please help me.

Welcome to e health forum.

Any medical condition cannot be diagnosed without a complete physical examination.

The symptoms that you have been enduring, could be due to -

1. Dehydration or electrolyte imbalance

2. Arrhythmic conditions or related cardiovascular disease - related to your Low blood pressure.

3. Anemia - which as per your history, you already have, and this needs to be treated properly to relieve your symptoms.

4. Benign Positional vertigo,

5. Peripheral neuropathy or Dysequilibrium (sensation of imbalance while walking) - due to infections of the Vestibular system.

It would be recommended that you consult a doctor and get a few tests including a hemogram, electrolytes, etc.

Based on the tests and physical examination your doctor or a neurologist can provide proper medications to control the symptoms.

I hope this helps.
