View Full Version : my daughter sarah rushed to emergency

05-19-2012, 05:24 PM
her headaches became worse . they admitted her they are going to give her mri to tests for ms or neuro complications due to lupus her eyesight is failing she is experiencing numbness and pins and needles and her balance and reflexes not good. we told them they needed to keep her in because neither me or my husband was well enough to look after her as she experiences dizzyness and colapses and we cannot pick her up. she also can suffer seizures . hopefully they can find out what is wrong with her. we have been looking after her for 10 days now and have had not much sleep we are exhausted with worry as she could be going blind. i am really fearful of that as i already fulltime carer for my husband and my 16 year old with aspergers i do not think i could care for another person. i feel so guilty feeling this way but i am tired and flaring from the stress but if things do go bad for her i will just have to step up and do it after all i am her mother and she is my responsibility. thanks for listenening to be vent . hope everyone has good day luv kim

sarah home from hospital mri alright but still needs to find out why eyesight failing also they picked up something else they said they had to up her pulse rate tablets as her pulse rate became higher again she now has to see heart specialist they think something is wrong with heart so we are still on the merry go round of doctors. at least one thing has been cleared up and i am happy for that seems she is getting a very severe form of migraines.
