Hospitals are not fun

Posted on

IMG_0040I went to the Urgent Care on Saturday morning and was immediately sent to the ER.  I was admitted immediately as I’m having chest pressure, fever, stomach pain, nausea, severe headache all new or increased issues.

I was dehydrated, my potassium levels were low, pain and nausea was subsided with IV medication but it’s all back.  They wanted to keep me but there was no way I would have been able to sleep in the busy hall with the three mental health patients and the lady who was continually retching.  I went back the next morning for more tests and found that I have sludge in my gallbladder in addition to my liver enzymes being up.  So more tests because the chest pressure is still there and pericardia is what they suspect which is something that happens with lupus.

Just want to give a quick update on me.  I’m seriously so over being constantly sick and people saying but you don’t look sick.

  • Ugh! I kind of hated hitting “Like” for for this post! I feel for you. Hospitals are definitely not fun. I’m certainly not in your shoes, but I do have an autoimmune “condition”–i live in a medical Black Hole, so that’s the best they can do. It’s not Lupus, though. But I definitely do have Migraine and have since I was about 9. A few weeks ago, one broke through the countless medications I take and BOTOX shots that was bad enough to send me to the ER. Well, it was like a Hillbilly Hoedown in there. (I live in East Tennessee.) I waited forever, vomiting periodically, until it was go home try not to OD on phenergan and demerol or kill someone, so I went home.

    Anyway, I so hate hospitals.

    Gosh, I think I just found my idea for today’s Writing 101 assignment.

    • I’ve been to the hospital for migraines- zofran & diludid is the combo that works best for them
      What sucks about autoimmune is one usually means more down the road

      • I know. 🙁 Yeah, that’s what usually end up with–finally–that ends up working. I have the DHE45 and Ketorlac to inject myself with at home, so I’m pretty desperate by the time I go to the hospital.
