Hello and Welcome to Healing Well and the A & P Forum. I am Kitt.
I read your post and I am glad you found us, as you will be able to post and receive support as well as support others which is very therapeutic.
I am a bit confused with the ER visit or perhaps I am just befuddled ?
Why did they give you the pain medication, what was their diagnosis, everyone has to have a diagnosis on discharge? You say your labs were off but were they ever rechecked? I do not know if your herbal Dr. did this or how he determined your endocrine system was out of whack?
I agree with the ones who have posted before me.............see a medical physician to rule out any medical problems and if all is well than I would look at therapy to learn how to deal with the anxiety and the sleeping problems. Anxiety can cause very real physical pain and problems. The mind is a powerful thing.
Please keep posting to us and we will support you. Know we care and you are no longer alone.
Thanks for all your support everyone!
Well with God's help, a positive and hopeful outlook (support from my family, friends, fiancee) my mind made it through the worse time in my life. I still had a fever for a few days after, but forced myself to eat which lowered my palpatations and blood pressure. I went to the doctor again and he took blood to see if everything was fine, but chalked it up to a virus that had caused all my distress. The problem I get now is being able to eat solid cooked foods as I have lost my appetite and I can now get to sleep, but the sleep is never deep enough causing me to wake up every two hours. So last night I slept at 10:30... woke up at 12:30... fell back to sleep really quickly... woke up at around 2:30-3... fell back to sleep again quickly and woke up at around 4:30... It's 8:48 now and I'm so tired... I can hardly keep awake, but I'm trying to avoid naps in hopes that it doesn't further mess things up. I'm considering quitting my new job (started yesterday and had to leave early because I was so tired and took the day job) Not worried about the job or getting to sleep, but wanting to get that deep constant 6-7-8 hours of sleep back... blah...
