Hi palady.../thank you for your input and answering so quickly! that is what I was thinking with this happening, all these weird things.I Hate the hospital..but it isn't going away. The stabbing pain eye but in my calves is worse on my right side though. I woke up the other morning and my "right" arm was totally dead, useless. But this eyepain I have never had before.. I don't have any jaw pain though, read about that...ok I will get ready. You should see my eyes! Just looked them now and they are all swollen up, both of them. All this stuff is really weird. Getting old! Lots of fun! not. Ok thank you..oh brother. Is the eyepain a sign though? What is this please if you know?
Wendy OUCH! LOL Not funny..
GO TO THE ER NOW.
Eye pain like that needs to be looked at ASAP. I hate the hospital as well but you really need a doctor to look at this. I am not a doctor but waking up with limbs that won't work is a major red flag.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
Ok! lol I will sorry I am just a bit freaking out now...my Dad is taking me.. he has been bugging me to go all day now but I will..yep the eye pain is something and these docs up here are Really stupid! I have been having these problems for quite awhile now and they just shrug off everything off and say there is nothing we can do. This is why I don't want to go..they are scary because some of them are sooo stupid...No kidding! They are wacked up here...free health care..yep! you only get what you pay for..ok I will shut up now and go...this is weird...and thank you so much! I will let you know what happens ok...thanks again..
p.s. I am sorry for all the problems everyone is having here. God bless everyone and thank you for being here.
Hi Everyone, thank you for your replies, very kind of you.
I am so sorry I didnt' let you know what happend right away but I was in the ER all night, ZOO! Will leave out the silly details and just tell you. They did take it seriously so that is good and put me in the major observation room. There was only one doc on but he came in and just said because my blood pressure etc. seemed ok he made a call that it wasn't a stroke! He took me right away though and put drops in my eyes and looked at my eyes under the scopes. He said I had scratches on my cornea! yikes..and that was what was causing all the pain. He put some gucky stuff in my eyes to make them feel better but seemed to dry them out and then I felt the sand feeling. ouch again. Said he didn't know how or why I had them there but I needed to see a specialist right away and give me a referral, told me to see my doc today and sent me on my way. Saw my doc today and he was dumbfounded..oh I forgot to tell you that here you are only allowed to see someone (doc) there for ONE thing...gosh Like I said my arm was falling asleep and waking up with a frozen arm and sometimes numb. Limbs..anyways I went for the eye and my doc said one thing at a time too. I was a bit upset because I have to force my arm away (open) and feels like I am tearing the muscles. I said it really hurts and feels bruised and as I said that lifted my shirt and sure enough there were bruises on my arm! that shocked me! You could actually see the bruising...I have baby birds so I need my hands and arm to handfeed in the morning otherwise I would be up in the ER with that. Maybe I should put them with my friend and go if this keeps up! gosh...I see my doc again on Sunday. Yep he is there 7 days a week due to the number of patients he has! wild huh!
I better go as I have to feed these wee ones. I have started doing this so I wouldn't go mental and to get me out of bed! It has worked that is for sure. The muscles in my legs have come back too. I have a site but won't tell unless you want me too. cockatiels but I am here to talk about our problems and asked for your help.Thank you Everyone so much! You know I met a woman in there who told me her aunt just lost her eyesite to little strokes she had that she didn't pay attention to! just the other week too. Eyepain is what she had! Freaked me right out too. Have to make that appointment myself to see the eye specialist, thought my doc would do that with my referral but didn't. Will do it tomorrow and he said get in there Right Away you don't want to mess with your eyes, it could be something bad...gosh.. Never a dull moment. I better go now but I will come back. Thank you PaLady & everyone!
p.s. Sorry if I seem to be in a rush, I am behind now with all of this happening..the birds keep me going that's for sure! Sometimes I feel like I can't handle it but I love them soo much and they have helped me Tremdously! I know I would be in a wheelchair without them. Small birds so it is easy to look after them. lol
Thanks and will keep you updated everyone on what he says...and thanks for your support yesterday and help. Sure means a lot to me and am sooo glad you are all here!
Hang on everyone with your pain and I will read some posts later on
I have been so busy with taken care of my best friend forever! I did take my blood pressure at the pharmacy and it was 200 something over 200 something. I usually run low like 111/76. Many times my pause and BP cant be found. I haven't addressed this yet. I have asthma so will blame it on that, this too shall pass. I am stressed big time right now with the health issues of my friend and my daughter getting married in less then THREE WEEKS! My fingers do go numb, is that panic or stress? No head aches just jabs in the eyes, or just real sensitiveness. I am also recovering from bruised ribs and that prob ups my BP as pain will do that. I live in the Midwest. I just saw my eye doctor due to this and my vision is the same as it was two years ago. I think it is just a huge change in activity and stress.

wow Cloe, I would go to the ER. 200/? That is near fibrilation! I would definately go and checked out Please! That is wayyyy too high and if your eyes are ok then for sure I would go.. I am not a doctor but have had soo many things go wrong...I do have my Medical secretary but that was years ago and can't remember everything...you sound like me big time, stressed over a lot of things. Please take care of yourself, it is better to be safe then sorry right!
oh sorry about the !!!! everyone. lol I get hyper sometimes.
Go and get checked out ok Cloe and let us know what they say.
All the best and take care!
I will pick up one of those check your on B/P things tomorrow.
My father had that fibrillation thing, and he got one of those B/P cuffs to use at home. You put it on your wrist. My sister is having bloody nose's A LOT and her B/P is off the charts. I haven't had a bloody nose since I was knee high to a grasshopper. No worries, this was last week and I feel better these days. I was just wondering what the heck was happening and went to eye doc. I may just be sun sensitive, nothing wrong with that. IMO.
I have a hard time excepting the idea that just cause one is in pain or under stress that they would have B/P issues.
I take good care of myself.
That's a good idea, my dad has a lot of those bp things too!
lol Why? When you are under stress or say if you get mad don't you notice it feels like your head is going to blow up sometimes along with your beating heart? That is your bp going up, sometimes you feel nothing though, you don't know it. Bleeding noses is a Really good thing when you have high blood pressure as it releases the pressure. It is a real lifesaver sometimes. My mom gets really high blood pressure and her eyes pop blood vessels. Sounds gross but she was told that it is the same as the nose bleeds but not as messy, just looks kind of awful.
I'm sure you do take good care of yourself like we all try but we have things happen to us out of our control I suppose right! I'm surprised your doc doesn't pay more attention to your bp. If you get one, you should start a log and do it daily and see what happens throughout the day or about a week. Maybe 3 or more times a day. May help to see if there is a problem. Just an idea if you get one of those things.
That eye pain is a pretty weird thing isn't it! Mine was soo severe I just couldn't let it pass. Scary too.. strange if something did scratch it I wonder how long it has been because I don't recall anything happening in the last 3 or 4 days that might have done that or anything really. I fell asleep with my glasses on about a week ago and I woke up hurting but why would it take so long to even feel it. too strange.
What is up with the brusing? I am covered with them? Not covered but have alot of them. I hate doctors btw.
Thanks PaLady, yes that helps.. I really wish he would do something because it is annoying thing to have this and it is a pain especially when you are just trying to do normal things like open a door! geesh. When I see him Sunday I am going to insist this time he does "something" or send me to someone like you suggest. I don't know why they put things off. I guess they want to watch to see if they go away but not like this. That is what the gp is there for, to referr you to a specialist with these type of problems right! ok thanks. oh I forgot to mention I am on 2x daily 7.5mg of meloxicam for arthritis and it works very well! Especially for my knees. If I didn't have that I wouldn't be able to function with the adema and pain. Works very well for me. When I was at the hospital they noticed that my lower legs were very swollen. That has been happening a lot lately. I also have chronic achilles tendonitis in both feet and have to wear special shoes and braces for my ankles and legs. Looks Lovely in a Summer dress! But they sure help me walk normal! My life has gone down the tubes since that car accident but what can you do. I am glad everyone is here to talk about these things as my friends listen but it isn't fair to them really and seems to scare them away. Amazing though through the birds at how many people and just lately I have met that have been diagnosed with MS and Lupus, etc! Terrible and scary. Birds seem to help everyone like this and they do. Sounds like you have been through your fair share of doctors and problems too PaLady and I know I probably don't know even half of it. Thanks for being here, everyone!
p.s. My brother looks at (lump on hand) and says oh..that's cancer..geesh like I need to hear that, went through that for about 3 years but am ok now. But better to rule out that!
Cloe I am glad also that you are going to the doctor. Thinking of you and hope that you get some answers and help. Yep I Totally agree that 200 is wayyy off the charts! My mom had that and was rushed to the hospital. Even if you see that once! Oh I wanted to say that my dad's doc didn't like him buying all these gadgets too on his own, PB kits and had him bring the best one in. He checked it and gave the ok so if you do that maybe that might be ok to do, can't hurt and maybe they are good to have around! I know I have used my dad's a few times. Good Luck! and try to get your stress down at least a bit, I know I have to watch that too.
Looking forward to some good news Cloe!
