Guest tearose Posted October 25, 2007 Report Share Posted October 25, 2007 I have been in a relapse of a new sort...of course, just when I thought I figured out the formula for managing.I had a recurrent bladder infection that seems to be sending my body into the current funk.I have a second level bladder prolapse..again, and I certainly am not getting adequate sleep. I'm up at least 3-4 times a night.Add to this, with the recent 80 degree temperatures (3 weeks ago) outside, and the swing in temperature to my body as I went in to a/c and grabbed ice cold items...and some Raynaud's reaction on my toes and fingers...painful white and red flushing on hands with greyish blue popping on fingers.Then...I had a first ever crushing chest pain that brought me to my knees last Friday. It was very bad. It lasted probably 10 seconds and nothing relieved it. I couldn't just breathe through this! I have done follow up this week (ekg and echo,) and the good news it my heart did not suffer any damage. The cardiologist said possible prinzmetal angina.So, the local cardiologist believes I am "out of balance" and my heart artery went into spasm and I need to get back into balance.I will keep nitroglycerine handy and if it happens again for longer than a few minutes, I would call 911 and then lay down and use one tablet for a few seconds at a time until help arrived. Don't even want to think of having to do this but at least I have the plan if needed.So I am now going to go into total healing mode. More almond tea, more rest with modified floor exercise, re look the electrolyte balance...fix the drooping bladder...Anyone have a spasm like this? What brought it on and how are you managing?Goodness gracious, when does the funkyness end?tearose Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
