momofpreciousboy Posted August 22, 2005 Report Share Posted August 22, 2005 I am curious to how many times you guys have called an ambulance? I have called 4 times during pre-syncope spells---I know what is going on now. They scare me to death-extreme racing-up to 170s, all over shaking, bp extremely high, sudden tiredness, need to go to bathroom, muscle spasms all over, chest pain, inability to swallow, numb arm, numb neck and others I am sure. So hopefully we do not go through this again, but would not hesitate to call again, if it got really bad and I was by myself. Although this last time they just asked if there was anything that would slow it down -my heart rate was staying in the 140s. I gave them the magic answer--iv fluids. If I could just do ivs at home.I am embarassed by having called them so much and am really hoping I am not the only one out there that has done this.
