....around 3:30pm Friday, my hubby had to take me to the hospital.
ever since wed morning, I have been having real bad dizzy spells (I have never had a dizzy spell before),it felt like the whole room was spinning!! anyways, I thought that it would just go away but I had more on Thursday and then Friday, I tried calling my doctor but she was booked so I finally got my hubby to take me to the hospital to find out whats wrong with me.
we got there (the hospital is only a 5 minute drive from where I live), had to wait maybe 5-10 minutes to see the triage nurse, get registered and sit down in the waiting room..the waiting room was busy when I got there. 15 minutes after I sat down I was called.
my hubby and I went into the back and waited to see the doctor, which was about an hour. I was still having dizzy spells, the doctor told me that my blood pressure was really high and was concerned because my face was extremely red. so he ordered blood work to be done.
we had to wait another hour and a half for a lab technician to take some blood. I told her before she started that she would have to take the blood from my hand but she was confidant that she could get from my arm...she was wrong! after 15 minutes she ended up taking it from my hand! I now have a small bruise on my arm and hand..oh well!....btw, my blood work came back normal!!!!
after waiting another couple of hours a nurse came in and checked my blood pressure again, it was still high but it did come down a little, another doctor came in and started checking me over and asking questions...she thinks that I have a sinus infection and that the pressure in my head is causing the dizzy spells. they gave me 2 prescriptions to take. and said I can go home.
the doctor still doesn't know why my blood pressure was high!! my blood pressure has always been normal. the last time it was high was when I had my surgery but it went down afterwards! so now I have to go and see my doctor next week sometime to see if I have to go on some blood pressure pills....we ended up being at the hospital for 5 1/2 hours!!!!
I am feeling ok, I had a few dizzy spells (actually i'm feeling a little dizzy while typing this) but I will be all right!
I hope you all have a great weekend!!! hugs!!!
