I'm needing some advice on guidelines to understand what to take serious and what to pretty much wait out,etc.
For example: Last Monday night nausea had set in so bad I thought I'd be violently ill but wasn't and I attributed it to the LP headache and figured the blood patch would take care of it, but that didn't happen, yet the nausea passed but came back in the evening. It's pretty much returned again almost every night now... briefly just long enough to make me nervous but it doesn't do anything.
The LP headache overrode most of this this week but it subsided by Friday...
Then Thursday at about 4pm, my right arm immediately became very painful with a radiating pain from my upper right chest, down the shoulder to the full arm to the fingertips... the arm felt warm, the pain simply radiated throughout, not a full throb, but maybe like I had a tourniquet on when they draw blood for labs... but of course there's not tourniquet. It's just uncomfortable. It's still pretty much that way now... going on 3 days.
And Friday morning, I had extreme intestinal distress without warning prior to the mess... which just drained me to a very weakened feeling.
So combined I'm thinking... crud, these are like a female heart failure warning... (I mentioned this in another post maybe) so I told my hubby about the arm thing Thurs night... just in case. He looks at me funny, I tell him just remember it so you can tell the EMT's if something happens... BP was 140/80 pulse 76, nothing majorly bad ( a little high but Provigil raises it a bit).
So the question is: At what point do you take a symptom serious enough to go to the ER or a Walk in Clinic to be sure you're not sitting on a ticking time bomb?
