Hi all my wonderful readers out there!
I wanted to make this post about my health as I have been going through a lot lately and is most the reason I have not been on here. Lets start off by letting you know a bit of my family history, my mother and father have heart issues as for my mother she has heart disease a whole in her heart and pulmonary hyoertention. All to scary at her young age in her late 40's.
I have been recently been looked at by my doctors as someone that may have some actual issues. For years I have been trying to get the doctors to notice that I am not crazy when I tell them that I feel like Im having a heart attack. When I tell them that my body hurts and that there is nothing that I seem to do to make myself better, my anxiety attacks that I feel I can no longer just breath through and control. They look at me as someone that looks healthy on the outside and never seemed to take me seriously.
Well about 4 months ago I was in the hospital for chest pains and was unexplained to what was going on, they set me up on there monitors and gave me a EKG, nothing was found till they realized that I have a really irregular mummer, witch they would just watch, them out of no were they finally caught was has been going on, Cardiac Arrhythmia. And regulated that by meds that they thought would help me calm down and keep my heart rate low.
Even with all the meds they gave me in the hospital I still almost went into cardiac arrest! At 25 years of age knowing that I could have died was nothing that I can explain. I have two babies I need to be here for them and love them, I CAN'T DIE. That was my moment that I knew I needed to fight for my health no matter what the doctors told me, I also found out that my potassium levels dangerously dropped and was given that in the hospital too. I have always known that my body does not always absorb the vitamins and minerals I needed well. But this one scared me too as its a KEY to the function to your muscles. Your heart is ONE BIG muscle.
Also was told that my thyroid was not functioning properly. They brushed that off like nothing and as soon as my heart was regulated they sent me home.
Well that brings me to last Friday, I was again in the hospital. It started when I was laying on the sofa watching a movie as my brother Rob and sister in law Katie were visiting, I had that same feeling come over me, I ended up blacking out for about two min and then went into my bedroom to tell my husband that he needed to take me to the hospital or call 911 as I didn't know what to do, I didn't have meds and we have no health care so this was all just a mess. He proceeded to take me in and from the time that I got into the care till we got to the hospital I had to have my head out the window and the cool air on me I felt I was going to pass out and most likely throw up. When we got there I told them my issues and they immediately took me to a room hooked me to monitors checked my heart for possible heart attack and started a IV for fluids and gave me a sedative as well as drew blood. I was in and out of it the whole time that I was there and had multiple episodes of my heart rate getting scary high.
From that they regulated me and proceeded to send me home with meds, that Monday I went into the clinic for more lab work. Again in the hospital my potassium was low and my thyroid was out of wack and the labs came back normal, this puzzled my doctors. I was sent to the heart clinic to have a holter placed and had to wear that to monitor for 24 hours. I am still unsure of what is going to happen and what the docs are going to do next but I am a bit scared. I just want to feel better, when my daughter asked me what was wrong I didn't know what to tell a 4 year old, so I just told her that mama's heart is acting silly and she asked me if it was broken? That there did brake my heart she is so concerned for her mommy. I love my babies to death they are my world and they are my reason.
With all this being said my support from my readers is important to me. I love to hear from you, your stories and experiences and support. So this is my reason for writing this, prayers are free and Know this may not seem as scary as some, but it is to me and my family.
Thank you so much for reading and you support!
