don't you all feel so blessed, lmao! Anyhow, I got a difinitive diagnosis of Vestibular Migranes. I was admitted for an abnormal EKG they thought i had a heart attack (I'm now 32, spent my birthday in the hospital). All my labs pretty much came back normal for cardiac stuff. No real signs of heart trouble. The lead cardiologist came and spoke to me a couple of nights ago and called the cheif ENT resident and now he is on my case and will get something done about these vertigo attacks. I will have to go see neuro, but they will take care of me until I am seen and he will raise a stink and will be writing up several doctors as a result of my care. I got accused of being drug seeking 15 min after being admitted to ER and asking for valium and zofran to stop the attack. Which is of course first line treatment! The ER doc said I was drug seeking, gave me benedryl which I didn't hold down or anything else until last night. I have a long road ahead of me but now that I have a definitive diagnosis I should have a better chance at returning to a "semi-normal" life where I can raise my son. I am greatful at having these certain docs look out for me. I'm now on 5 new meds that I haven't taken before. I hope they work! I want to get better. 5 days in the hospital is a long time! This cheif resident spent 3 hours looking through my records and everything else and talked to his cheif which I will see before I go back to northern IL if I don't stay here for treatment. I will be here for at least 2 months more near St. Louis for treatment. I found out tonight that my grandpa is septic and likely to die in the next few days and I can't even travel to him Please keep our family in your thoughts as I won't be able to attend the funeral. I have to stay within 1 hour of the hospital at all times. My son cries for me several times a day and it's only been a week since he has been gone. This is one time in my life I wish I had someone to share with besides online and people who want more than just sex. I feel so alone right now. I know I have friends but I wish I could be there for my mom and my son, it really tears me apart inside. As I am very close to my grandparents.
