Well, what a day I had yesterday. I had a scheduled a doctors appointment with my GP. Before I got there, my blood pressure and heart rate were increasing. By the time I got to the GP's office, my BP was 150/100 and my heart rate was between 90-100. My normal BP and heart rate is 120/70, and 75.
My doctor told me to go to the hospital because my EKG didn't look normal. But before i left, she told me I have massive HA----and this is nothing but a panic attack.
I went to the hospital and I found out that my potasium level was low, which was causing my hear and BP to be elevated.
But you know what---my GP is right, I have massive HA. I have been scared beyond belief that there was something wrong, even though I have had every test (chest x ray, MRI abdomen, ultra sound abdomen, and CT scan with contrast of abdomen and pelvic region) short of a coloscopy. I have had my mind fixed on the fact that I have CC because my GI sytem is "off". Well, my system is off because of my HA and the fact I was on antibiotics (multiple) for about two months. I now have bought a probiotic (ultimate flora) and I really, really think all of my GI systems will clear itself once I get my HA under control. But I also know it may take a few weeks if not months to accomplish this.
In as much as I didn't want to hear what my GP had to say, she was right. I had a long talk with myself. Enough of this HA robbing me of me and my family of me.
It is time for me to pick myself up by my boot straps and go and live my life. Life is way too short. I am going to find a therapist to help me with this.
But today, has been the first day, in a long, long time where I feel good.
