Last week my best friend started complaining of back pain. Within a day it was getting so bad he went to the emergency of our local hospital, they gave him some pain pills and took him off work for a week. He just kept feeling worse and worse. A day or two after he went to the hospital, the ambulance had to come and get him. When he reached the hospital his blood pressure was extremely high and he was in terrible pain with his back.(he had told me the night before that he felt like it was hurting near his kidneys). They got his blood pressure lowerd, then all of the sudden the bottom dropped out of it. They finnally got it somewhat leveld out but his back pain was just getting worse. He was running a fever, around 101 degrees. All of the urine tests and what ever blood tests they took showed nothing , except his blood sugar level was over 300. They did hart tests , organ tests an MRI but nothing can be found. Then when he woke up this morning he could not move his legs, he could feel the sensations when you touched him but he can not move them at all, they had NO idea why. By this evening his speech is starting to slur, they did more tests, CATSCANS, MRI's, they said he may have had a stroke sometime during the night. But they think they found some damage in the lower valves of his heart. But they still can not find what is causing the severe back pain and the fever.They also had to put a cathadore in him. Hels 43, 6 foot tall and weighs around 300 pounds, PLEASE , THERE HAS TO BE SOMEONE THAT MAY KNOW SOMETHING HIS CONDITION IS DETIERIATING FAST AND I KNOW SOMEONE HAS THE ANSWER. OR POSSIBILITY OR COMMENT PLEASE HELP US:( :( :(
