NOT SURE WHAT IS GOING ON.
MY NAME IS RHONDA. MY MEDICAL PROBLEM STARTED THIS PASSED SUMMER. IT STARTED WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO SLEEP. I HONNESTLY THOUGHT NOT MUCH ABOUT IT TILL WEEKS WENT BY. WENT TO THE DOCTOR SEVERAL TIMES. NO SLEEP AIDES HELPED. WEEKS WENT TO MONTHS :eek: ANYWAY, THOUGHT A VACATION WAS IN ORDER. LITTLE DID I KNOW THIS IS WHEN EVERYTHING WOULD TAKE A TURN TO THE WORST. WHILE I WAS ON VACATION DRIVING....I HAD MY FIRST SPELL. WHILE DRIVING I BLACKED OUT FOR A FEW SEC. I DID NOT FEEL ANYTHING...TILL MY SON SCREAMED AT ME, I LOOKED UP THEN MY HEAD FELT STRANGE, HEART RACED, PASSED-OUT AGAIN, WOKE UP SHAKING AND SICK TO MY STOMACH... I COULDENT EVEN TALK. WHEN I WAS IN THE ER. I BROKE OUT IN A COLD SWEAT. THEY SAID THAT THEY THOUGHT I HAD WHAT THEY CALLED SUGAR DUMPING... I WAS HAPPY AT THAT POINT BECAUSE MY NIGHT MARE I THOUGHT WAS OVER.:o......NOT. GOT BACK FROM VACATION HAD ALOT OF SPELLS AND ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL MORE TIMES THAN I WANT TO TALK ABOUT, HOWEVER THE LAST TIME WHEN I HAD A SPELL I HAD TO CALL 911...THEY FOUND ME AT HOME PASSED OUT ON THE KITCHEN FLOOR. WHEN THEY GOT ME TO THE ER. THEY SAID I HAD HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND LOW BLOOD SUGAR...OF 43 WHEN THEY FOUND ME. I THOUGT MAYBE DIEABETIC? NOT..... TESTS CAME BACK OK... STAYED IN THE HOSPITAL ALL THE DOCTORS SAID ALL TESTS WERE OK. ALL I CAN THINK IS WHAT HAPPENING TO ME?
ANYWAY, I HAVE HAD NEW SYMPTOMS. AT NIGHT MY HEART LIKES TO RACE. I HAVE NIGHT SWEATS, I HAVE PAIN IN MY UPPER TUMMY EVERY NIGHT WHEN I LAY DOWN. I HAVE PAIN IN BOTH SIDES OF MY NECK AND IN THE BACK ON MY HEAD. I USE ALOT OF ICY HOT AT NIGHT:rolleyes: IT MAKES THE PAIN A BET BETTER. I STILL GET MY DIZZY SPELLS BUT NOT AS BAD LATELY BUT I DO GET WHERE MY HEAD FEELS REALLY STRANGE AND IF I AM WATCHING TV I BECOME ALITTLE LATHARGIC... I STARE OFF INTO SPACE FOR A FEW SEC.. I HEAR YOU BUT I CANT RESPOND FAST...WHICH HAS ME WORRIED ABET. THEY ONLY TIME I REALLY GET DIZZY NOW IS IF I AM IN A HOT SHOWER OR MY HEART ACTS UP. I NOW HAVE A RASH THAT COMES AND GOES ON MY FACE.. CORNNER OF MY EYES NOSE AND CHEN.
ANYWAY THIS IS WHATS BEEN HAPPENING TO ME. I HAVE A APPOINTMENT IN CHICAGO AT NORTHWESTERN UN..ON JAN 5-2009.. MY DOCTOR IS SENDING ME THERE.. I HOPE I GET THIS FIXED. IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE AN ANGLE OR TWO THAT MITE HAVE A THOUGHT??????? THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
