At the Emergency Room in severe pain

Nov 30, 2015 4:49 PM

I am in the waiting room at the E.R hoping to get in within this decade. I had to get sick on a busy day. My pain is a 9. It is all over my arms, neck, shoulders and back. It is so bad my family was just watching me massaging those areas non-stop. I couldn't stop doing stretches either. The pain was so bad. Then I started getting confused. Oh by the way, I did get a full nights sleep after not sleeping. But then the confusion started. But then I knew I was having problems after I got 101.5 fever. I just had got off antibiotic three days ago. And my pulse ox had been running from 79 to 85. But I made mysel walk despite the pain, I have got if to 88 to 93. So I don't know what is going on. I am hoping it is something simple so the pain can be alleviated. I hope all you out there are in less pain then you are use too. Everyone here deserves that. I hope my post doesn't sound crazy. I am real tired and confused.

Profiler, I'm praying for you! Please rest and be patient while the staff gets to you. If it's like here there are so many bugs going around I'm getting paranoid of going out, especially with my immunity issues. I had an appt today and the RN was sick coughing and sneezing. I'm like "go home and quit exposing everyone else." πŸ™πŸŒΌ

I understand being so tired and/or in so much pain you are just so confused and don't know how to say what u want to say. It's so frustrating! Hell I think my husband doesn't believe me half the time because I'm "too young to have so many problems" and I have a "low tolerance for pain than most" which I do. I always have but I at least know how to deal with the pain as best as I can if I feel I'm overreacting.
I hope you're able to be seen soon. I hate going to the ER. is there not an urgent care nearby?
Hugs and positive vibes sent your way!

Aww that sucks. I hope you will get treatment and feel better asap, sending out thoughts of feeling better.

I just started my antibiotics and I hope I will feel a little better in two days.

Profiler, I'm glad you're on the antibiotics now and the road to recovery. Feel better

Dec 01, 2015 1:39 AM

Just catching up on posts now. And I am glad you have been seen and getting the proper care to get better fast.

Profiler,
I am so sorry that you are in the ER and I hope and pray that they are able to help you to feel better. I know what that kind of pain feels like and it sucks. I have been running fevers on and off for 2 weeks and am in a flare of CRPS and Fibro. Now, with all the kids being here for Thanksgiving, I've got a horrible icons, sinus thing going on and I have a fever of 102.1 right now. I took Advil and have not been to sleep yet, but that's ok, I don't have to be anywhere tomorrow so maybe I can nap. I am hoping the doctors have been able to find a remedy to get your pain levels down and to find out what is causing your fever. When you are sleep deprived, even though you slept, being sick and in that kind of pain can get cause mental confusion. It had happened to me and it's sure scary and no fun. Sending you love, {{{{Hugs}}}} and prayers that all is better when you get back from the hospital. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Profiler, I'm sorry to hear this. But I'm so glad you're getting care now. You take care and get well soon. (((Hugs))) & prayers! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Oh goodness! Please take care of yourself! We're all here for you! Hugs and prayers sent your way!

thanks everyone for the support. It was kind. Always, I am so sorry that you are sick too. I am hope you fever is down today. It is awful when you have a fever,. I don't know about you, but my skin burns and my body aches. I hate it. But it is our body's way of telling us something is wrong and fixing it. Even though we don't like it, it is amazing. I am sure it doesn't feel that way to someone who gets fevers all the time though. Well, ii hope everyone out there is feeling fetter than usual.

I'm so sorry you have to be in the ER, I know it's not a fun place to be and it can be depressing. Keep us posted so we don't worry too much about you! I'm sending you gentle hugs and prayer 🌼πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Profiler, thank you for thinking of me. My fever is down but I am pretty sick. I have a bad cold with sinus and chest congestion, cough, aches and burning. We have had 3 days in a row of really crappy weather so my Costochondritis is acting up and my neck feels like there's cement in it and I've gotten up with a migraine this morning which is making my stomach sick which had my anxiety up... On top of that, I'm exhausted because I was up until 4:30 this morning and woke up at 6:15 to go to the bathroom.. Oh well, it is what it is, right?? What did they tell you at the ER? Were they able to help you to feel better? I was worried when I didn't see a response from you. I hope that you are feeling better this day. Sending out positive vibes, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you have a peaceful and low pain Wednesday. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Profiler I hope you are on the mend with the pneumonia!

Dec 03, 2015 12:27 PM

Profiler, thinking of you and hoping that you are feeling better with your pneumonia. Get the rest you need, get your energy back and know I'm thinking of you. Sending you {{Hugs}} and prayers.πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»
