Watch out for an imbalance of electrolytes. Or just have an innocent epsom salt foot bath until the situation rights itself then stop. You don't inform your doctor before you go on a massive bender/smoke 20 fags/binge on McDonalds/drink coffee all day. Your GP is there for genuine emergencies, not to hold your hand.
