Guest Belinda Posted April 3, 2006 Report Share Posted April 3, 2006 Well Saturday I had a VERY hard time..I am still having a real hard time. I will explain my symptoms to all of you. My back of my neck and down my spine is so tight it feels like I am being paraylized and it hurts. I also am having times of palpitations and chest pains. My jaw and mouth at times feels like they are stiff.My skin is on fire and my nose is stilll burning and throobing and feelinf like it is full of something.When I went into the ER on Sat. I couldn't feel my hands and feet and they tingled all the way up my legs.They did the normal EKG's and montired me for a while and then sent me upstairs for POTS and autonomic dysfunction..when I went in there my pulse was in the 130's and my resp. were 30 and oxgen levels were normal. BP was 153/64Okay so they put me in and had no idea what to do with me they did give me a bit of IV fluids and potassium as mine was slightly low.They had nothing to offer me becausae they aren't experienced in autonomic dysfunction and let me go last night. They did try and call DR.Grubb and he was unavailable. I have appt. at 4:30 tommorow with Bev. which will probrably do nothing for me as I don't need drugs I need to know if there is something wlse going on with me. Also my legs and arms are like rubber.I really don't feel like I am going to make it through this and I am scared. Scared for my kids. If anyone has any advice on how to get these docs to pay attention and any suggestions on what else might be happening please feel free to give your opinions I know noone else is a doc on here just looking for help from others who have been through it..and if anyone ever has ever felt anywhere similar please let me know as it might ease some of my discomfort.Sorry for the long post but I felt I needed to give a whole picture again I am not looking for medical advice just for opinions.Hope this finds you all well and thank you for your thoughts and well wishes in julies post.Belinda Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
