Another ER visit


Recommended Posts

I spent last night again in the emergency room.

They didn't know what to do so they gave me an IV throughout the night.

The Er Dr was ready to admit me last night, but then another dr who came on in the morning decided against it, for I have had too many tests already.

He decided to do a psych consult, which I did, and I passed.

One positive is I got a hold of the autonomic specialist today. There was apparently quite the waiting list, but he came on the phone and talked to me personally and he decided to see me on Thursday morning.

Thursday can't come soon enough for me.

On a sidenote, I've been experiencing this weird feeling on and off thoughout the day, with BP and HR increases. It's like a rush throughout my body that even goes through my head, it is awful. I also have sore spots on my back, which when pressure is applied I feel a funny feeling radiating throughout different areas. Has anybody else experienced this?

I hope all is well for everybody.

Hi Traci,

I don't think we've "met" before, so I wanted to say hi and welcome to you. Can't help you with your questions, but I'm very sorry you were at the ER. I hope it will be thursday soon so that you may get some more answers.

Best wishes,

Hi Traci I also just had to visit the er and was fortunate that my primary care physician was on call so I did not have to explain my problems. Vertigo was my biggest issue , however the syncope would also occurr upon standing. I try my best to stay out of the hospital and only go if I have too. I do know the feeling you are talking about it makes me feel as if my whole body is tingling and or my blood is moving real slow through out my body. Heat will often make this worse and sometimes after eating a meal I have a blood pressure and heart rate monitor at home and alot of the time when I am feeling this way my heart rate will be low. Other than that I am not really sure what is going on. Try having the docs giving you a steroid dose pack this along with valum while everything was spinning has helped a lot.

Best Wishes,

Rita :)
