Scared Of Anxiety In The ER

Jun 24, 2017 10:27 PM

I have panic attacks in addition to all of the other bull I'm diagnosed with. I've been having stomach on the right lower side of my stomach for 2 1/2 months. I spoke with my kidney doctor she took a hypothetical guess by saying maybe it's my appendix but I had it removed in 2011. I'm thinking it could be my fallopian tube from my ectopic pregnancy in 2010. I'm afraid to find out because of all the surgeries I have endured in the past 20 years. Soon enough I'm just going to be walking scar tissue. I've missed my granddaughter's 2nd birthday today because of this pain. Hell I can't even walk straight. I walk with a limp due to this pain. My anxiety/panic attack as always will end up being the issue as opposed to why I really came to the ER. 😖😖😖😖😖😖😖 Utterly Irritated.

Yeah, and the damn doctors always look at you like you're insane...rather than suffering from an actual diagnosable condition. They should actually read some of their ( doctors) findings about panic attacks and have all the more compassionate response and treatment for both things you're going in to see them about. I long for the day and for the doctor that says to me...here let's get you calmed down (diazepam in the IV)and let's get your pain level down (pain med in the IV) so that you and I can converse about whats going on with you. Sorry if it seems like I'm advocating for "drugs" but I am. I'm advocating for the proper medications at the proper times. Thays what they are for. We are at such a disadvantage when in a panic attack and tremendous pain...how can we concentrate and have an intelligent conversation about our health issues under that kind of duress(spelling? Sorry) I think the doctors like it that way , people women especially, are easier to push around that way. Sorry you're going through this and rotten timing too. Someday we're all going to DO something about the way pain patients are treated. My thoughts and prayers are with you

Just when I think I'm alone I get this positive feed back which I'm so happy to know it's not just me. I agree about the meds 1000%. If triage says I'm here for my stomach why do I need to speak with a psychiatrist. B
