I was just released from Hamet Hospital friday from dehydrat

Patient : I was just released from Hamet Hospital friday from dehydration. They tested my blood and it came out normal. Then I had realized that I may had taken too much depakote. I had looked online for the symptoms it can cause and I'm confused because there's a lot of things that can cause dehydration. I had called Stairways behavioral health and the nurse implied psychosomatic dysphoria. My question is what can cause someone to feel like their dying. It feels like I'm falling into a coma or to the afterlife. I don't deny that I'm paranoid and anxiety but the feelings are real. Please help so I can relax. It seems that no one is giving me a direct answer. Thanx, yours truly Charles
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. Electrolyte disorders where the sodium and potassium levels get very low, can cause a dying like feeling besides severe anemia, which does not seem likely in your case. You can get your RFT with serum electrolytes evaluated. Hope this was helpful, Regards.
