I need to VENT!
I am just so tired of being poked at!! I just got out of hospital after 30hrs in with severe chest pain-no heart muscle damage. I have had chest pain before but this was unbearable. Picked up by ambulance veins had gone south for this exercise so I got morphine sprayed up the nose. During hospital night my blood pressure was 81 over45. A little low.!.. I am now off for an urgent Eco heart stress test and cardio visit and most of them can't see me until Jan... But one is looking at his diary. In the mean time I had a EMG yesterday and the results to go to the Neuro on next tue visit along with the results of the skin biopsy. Then in between this I have my first visit with my rhumy the next week to start meds for the Lupus which has now been confirmed within my Mixed Connective Tissue disorder. Ahhhhhhhh when will I get a life to enjoy that isn't filled with drs and hospitals? As it is getting warmer and all the dr surgeries I am sitting in, my photo sensitivity is really getting me down.
We were going away for a four day break hiring a motor home and now I have been told not to go out of mobile service and not to go too far from hospitals! In western Australia distance is the worry when traveling
Thank you all for reading my dribble but I do feel better after writing this. I know tomorrow when I have had some good sleep after being in hospital I will feel much stronger emotionally but at the moment I am feeling a little sorry for myself!
Awww, feel better soon, Desleywr,
Hopefully, once the rheumy gets you started on the right meds, you will start feeling better.
Feel better soon! And I hope you're able to get help soon!
Blessings, Love & Aloha,
I have just been sent the results of a ECG stress test done the week before going to hospital. It says ... Baseline ECG: Poor R wave progression V1-V6. Interesting as when I google this i read this as I have possibly had a previous heart attack that I didnt know about. Makes me behave myself more before I can see the cardio and ask him. Thanks for your support!
Did anyone explain to you what the results mean? I suppose these results mean that you might be able to see a cardiologist a bit sooner?
Sorry I didn't make lunch.
No all the Hospital did was fax the request of Eco stress test and cardio visit URGEnTLY on the form. Gp said this morning that he would really like me to be seen by a cardio tomorrow. This isnt going to happen... Not for about ten days. Gp gave me copy of the stress test I had done on the 1st nov which has the above comment. Then he told me not to go out of mobile range and not more than 20min from a hospital. Do you have any more info than that? Thanks
