thankyou all so very much for replyingxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
my mums history is as follows
she is on ramipril and atenlol, for high blood pressure. had this for a few years they first thought it was angina, she has osteoarthritis, but isnt on meds for that. She likes a good drink but nothing i can do about that. tried and failed many a time. this panick attack was her first. few months ago she had an umbilcal hernia repaired after it swelled to a huge size and was close to strangling her bowel. she doesnt open up and probably never will, i suppose you could say its that stiff upper lip thing. But my mum would never come on this site. She thinks i am mad for wanting support with my health problems and that these sort of sites scaremonger etc...... Even when ive been pregnant she told me to not read the books although to me knolwedge is a great thing. The info is for myself only.
My mum had this attack while sleeping off a large amount of alcohol which is near every night. i know the alcohol exagerates things with mum as it has done for years. The docs said that the only explanation for the attack was panick as her heart was fine. I was not present for the diagnosis, but she was told if it happens again just to go to her GP, no meds were offered no further exams etc..... i have a very close friend who suffers with agoraphobia has done for 10 years and i know she was given lots of tests etc... she is now on a mountain of meds. i am just so confused as i dont know what to believe because of the alcohol prob. She was drunk while admitted to the er. she isnt unhappy or wworried about things, i know as i see mum every day. you all probably think i dont care about mum or am minimsing her probs, but believe me im not so much has happened through alcohol that it is like the boy who cried wolf. i am so confused, i want to believe everything said but something is niggling at me, this is why i wanted to have a chat with fine people like yourselves who are genuine, so i can get the full extent of what could be the case. im not saying she lied about her diagnosis but it wouldnt be the first time, but this way when she s with me i can look out for signs of a looming attack and know what to do. She also did say when in the local er before being moved that the docs gave her an injection and she fainted afterwards, she is not scared of needles or anthing, but she sai her heartbeat went down to 99/60 post njection.
thankyou once again i only hope that you can understand where i am coming from with this, thanks again for any more help given
