My ER Visit

Posted by coldethyl , 09 October 2007 · 261 views

I ended up in the emergency department of the hospital yesterday morning.  Here's what happened:

The Honda guys finished with my van and as they were handing me my keys I felt a pressure/pain behind my right eye and my vision went triple/blurry.  I thought I was having a stroke.  It scared me very badly.  I went to my van and sat for just a second but the pressure behind my eye scared me.  I came back in the garage area and asked a woman for help.  She took me back inside and one of the Honda guys drove me across the interstate to the emergency department of the hospital.  I was able to get in touch with my hubby there.  They gave me a CAT scan.  My brain turned out to be fine (haha) and the doc thinks I had an atypical ocular migraine.  They gave me a shot of Demerol and Phenegran and sent me home with hubby to sleep.

I'm still a bit out of it, but I'm at work.  Pretty scary.  I just knew I'd had a stroke.






Jesus Christ!  what are you doing at work?

Please for the love of god or alice please go home.  I worry about you.

I agree with Ciraxis, go home, I guarantee you the job will still be there when you get back.

If you have any questions about seeing an ophthalmologist let me know, my wife works in an ophthalmology office.

Thanks guys.

I'm okay now, just kinda out of it.

I can't really afford to go home.  I missed all day yesterday and I don't have any paid days left.

I've never experienced anything like this, it was really scary.

I usually get migraines with auras, but never the vision thing like what happened yesterday.

The shot hurt my hip tho.  It's still sore.

I'm just gonna sorta hang out here until time to go home.  ♥
