Patient replied :

I never had asthma n m nt diabitic as well. The reason i was told by doc while i was sent bk home was that it was due to lack of oxygn in brain n poor ventilation of my room .. it was too hot that night n my room windows n door was closed. AC wasnt that effective. Rest i dont know wht happened to me exactly. Yes i was on drip n few injections were given via drip. reports are attached

I have gone through your reports, which looks normal. I suggest to do Tread Mill , if in case tread mill is normal , it is assumed that , the episode may to due poor ventilation.
