Potential health scare :(

Post by Rach on Fri Sep 11, 2009 4:21 am

Hi guys,

I just wanted to let you know that last night/this morning I had the worst health scare in the world. I started having really bad chest pains that moved all the way into my back and down the right hand side of my rib cage. It felt like a knife was stabbing me all the way through my chest and coming out into my back. I could barely breathe and I was going dizzy and lost all feeling in my hands and legs. I was so scared, I honestly thought I was going to die. Sad

I called the paramedics who took me to the ER and I had 2 ECG scans and bloods taken and had to be admitted for 5 hours. Thankfully all came back ok and it was put down to muscle problems and also stress. It gave me the wakeup call that I needed!

So, if you don't see me around on the forum as much or I am online and don't post or reply to your PMs please don't take this to heart. I now realise I have been spending so much time on here and not looking after myself like I should be and this really shocked me.

I think it's worth reminding all members that sometimes what goes on here seems like it's the most important thing in the world but after what I went through tonight I have realised it isn't, and when your own health becomes at risk you need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

Much love to all xoxo

Please look after urself and I agree with u - health is definitely our priority..

my sister had similar problem recently which started last year - she had harp pains in her left side near her rib cage, extremely painful..the problem was that she was not eating properly (had to skip breakfast most of the time) as she was busy and bcoz she had to use computer regularly (office related work) and tired..although the pain didn't go away completely, she is ok now.

hope u get better soon

Rachel, I'm glad your okay. You really sent me into panic mode last night on Twitter. Sorry I sorta yelled at you to get your but off twitter and go to the hospital. I'm glad to hear your doing better. Take all the time you need to rest. I don't want you think about us at all. We handle everything for you here. Take care of yourself. Hugs and love to you my friend.

Rachel sweetheart...I'm so sorry I didn't know. I haven't been on the last few days...busy week with doctors & dentist apts!! I am not a doctor Rach, but what you describes sounds like a "full blown" panic attack to me. I have alot of "anxiety" issues and have panic attacks. I used to have the SAME thing happen...I thought I was dyeing and was having a heart attack...just like you. After about the 3rd visit to the ER, I went to my family doctor because I was getting angry that the hospital would just send me home telling me nothing is wrong...just stress. My doctor immediately knew that I was having panic attacks. (This has been a few years ago), but she put me on medication (xanax) that I can take when I feel a panic attack coming on, and it works. I don't know what I did without it...I feel like a different person. If that's what it is (I would bet a million dollars it is), you will be able to recognize your symptoms before the full attack happens. You will feel kind of nervous, clammy, and overwhelmed. When I recognize what is happening, I take my medication and am just fine. I haven't had a really bad attack (like you are describing) since I have been taking meds for it. Sometimes the silliest things can trigger the attacks. One time I was at WalMart, and it was so crowded that I couldn't even push my cart. I started feeling clausterphobic and had a panic attack...one time I was at a restaurant and I felt something on my foot...I looked down and it was a freaking roach!!! Talk about having a panic attack then...I was out of there real quick!!! (lol) Anyway, what I am trying to say is even the smallest stressful things can bring on an attack...and you have had ALOT of stress lately having to deal with us and the forum (except for me of course ~ lol), so I can only imagine how you must of felt. PLEASE go to see your family doctor. Tell them that a friend of yours thinks you had a panic attack. There is no sense in suffering if you don't need to if they have medication to help you feel and cope better. Sorry my post is so long...I am just worrried about you. I remember how scared I was before my doctor treated me. And that feeling of not being able to breathe and the chest pains...it is so scary and don't want my friend (YOU) to go through that. Take care of yourself sweetie...I love you just like a sister, and want you to feel better. And if you have any questions about my experience with panic attacks, just let me know...I'm sure I can answer them for you. I'm there for you.
