I was in hosp. had to have a fasting blood work and had med. injected for test, long story short ,I had a reaction to the med and I passed out my blood pressure bottomed out, they gave me 2 or 3 mg. epinephrine called an ambulance to transport me to hospital.
I'm ok,but I have a DR. appointment and then work. I will get back to you.
Take care,
DeeDee

DeeDee, oh my gosh!  I am so sorry that happened to you!  Do you know what the med was that they gave you?  You need to note that you are allergic to it, so that it is never given to you again.

I hope you are feeling better now.  Thanks for letting me/us know!

Big hugs,

Connie

Thanks Connie and Rick,

 I'm feeling better but not 100% yet. I had to stop my diuretics due to my pressure so of course I put on about 6 lbs. of fluid. My feet and legs are really bothering me today from the edema, but thank goodness the Dr. said I can start taking my aldactone and lasix tomorrow.

The med. they injected me with was called cosyntropin, it's used when a greater cortisal stimulation is needed to help diagnose adrenal insufficiency. Basicly the endocrinologist was checking all possibilities of diabetes/hypoglycemia. Personally I feel my sugar is dropping so low due to my liver. I will ask my hepatologist about this at my next appointment  in Nov. I wish his office was closer to me but its a 2 hour drive and since I can't drive that far I only go to him when he wants to see me. I get all labs and test done at the local hospital  that he orders. Unfortunately The Drs. and hospitals by me arent that great.

How are you both doing??

Take care ..my thoughts and prayers are with you both, DeeDee

DeeDee, I'm glad that you are feeling better.  I'm sure you will feel even better when you get some of that fluid off.  I hope they find the cause for your low blood sugar.

Hugs,

Connie
