Dehydration: you are experiencing a serious dehydration with possible electrolyte abnormality like a heat stroke do not ignore it your dark urine indicate you are very dehydrated your symptoms indicate your dehydration is severe and could be very dangerous go to the closest emergency room please if that is not possible make sure you drink Gatorade and water and eat something salty like saltine good luck

Call 911: Light-headedness followed by collapse (fainting or passing out) may be serious. Don't mess around, call 911 (don't drive if light-headed). If this happened last week and you have been fine since, see your doc this week for evaluation. Hopefully it will be something minor, but there is no way to tell without an exam and lab work.

If you fainted yesterday, your urine was dark Call your doctor and tell him exactly what happened and he/she will advise you on how soon you should be checked. An urgent care center can do a urinalysis as well and pregnancy test as well.
