Loss of sight and numbness in my hands


Q: I went away with my boyfriend. We were in the shower together. We barely even started anything and I suddenly started getting very dizzy and began feeling over heated. I went to sit down and everything started going dark, until my sight had gone away completely. Everything was pitch black. I was so scared and began to panic. Making it harder to regain myself. Than my hands started to go numb and I began shaking. A couple minutes later my sight slowly started to come back. It took a while to get he feeling back in my hands and my hands were shaking for a good part of the day. What could be the cause of this? And should I be worried?
