SHAME ON ME!!! IT'S BEEN AWHILE SINCE I LAST POSTED OR VISITED,PLEASE FORGIVE ME..
LIFE HAS BEEN HETIC WITH TRYING TO GET BACK TO WORKING FULL TIME AND NOT GETTING ANY BETTER..
I've been going through some hard times and I know most of you are also and I'm really sorry I haven't been around,but hopefully that won't happen again. Cause I hate going to the hospital,especially by rescue which happened this past Wed.I was out shopping with my Dad and Niece when all of a sudden without any warnings at all I got an intense headache that took my breath away and I could hardly walk,much less stand.Was taken to the nearest hospital,no where near my reg.drs and it seem to have taken for hours which it did.They had only 1 dr on staff that morning I came in about 11:00 am and didn't get seen til almost 4pm,granted they did blood work,cat scan and hooked me up to monitors.Mind ya the headache was not getting any better,how could it I wasn't getting any meds not even IV fluids,I did I have an IV in place that the paramedics did in the rescue..It wasn't til I started vomiting that I got something for that only and than the afternoon Dr came in ,never saw the am Dr and after a brief exam I got Iv fluids with a piggy back bag of pheragan and dilauid and than a spinal tap was ordered.THe Dr tried 3 times in the ER but had no luck,so finally I was sent to radiology for them to do it and THANK GOD he got it on the first try..My back is sore and looks like a pin cushion,just 3 weeks earlier I had strained by back while out in the boat during King Fish Tournament,so by now by back is sore to be heck..They still not sure what caused it no infection in the fluid so no menaguies(spelt it wrong) and no red blood cell so no ruptured anruysm...So Neuro Dr oked to have the second series of three of a cervical epidural steriod injection and in the OR before getting on the table I had another one of those instant headache came on right in the middle of a conversation I was having with the Dr .They had to help me on the table and sedated me immediately and than hooked up the monitor,cause they tried to hooked the monitors up first but my body was thrashing from the intensed pain.He gave me feriocet to take between my methadone dosage and zanaflex and told me to call right away if it happen again,so I had to cancel my trip to Orlando this weekend..Bummer casue I was so looking for a get away from everything..I see my Neru Dr on the 16th hopefully he can shed some light on the sitituation and we can get it under control..Has anyone else had this happen to them and if so what the heck is it? Well better get ready my son will be here soon to go to the movies,I think he is taking me to see The Dukes of Hazard...Take care and hope everyone is having a nice weekend..
