If hospital doesn't help, try extremely diluted apricot pits.

Also, don't let them put you in the childrens ward by mistake.

Well, a lack of solid info, but at least you're getting stuff done. O2 at 95 isn't bad - being a smoker, mine ticks around 96 most of he time. Did I read it was down at 80-something before, or am I making that up?

Hope things start improving soon.

95 was after about twenty minutes led in a bed without moving. The other day, with a Pulseox on my finger, two minutes of moderate paced walking around a car park put my O2 sat at 88% and my pulse at 163bpm. These are bad numbers.

They gave you an injection to test your blood-oxygen saturation? They can test that by putting a "magic thing" onto the end of your finger.

That's the pulse-ox right? Neat little device. I got that when I went recently - the last time I'd had my pulse checked was probably 20 years ago and it was done by hand, and counting.

The injection is for blood thinning, I think he wrote.

I had a pulseox, yes, but they aren't totally accurate and he was basing the let-me-go-or-keep-me-in decision on the reading. So they did a blood gas test, which involves drawing blood from an artery (not a vein) usually in the wrist.

Then I had another injection for the thinning drug. In all, I've been stuck with needles five times in the last 48 hours (two normal blood tests, blood gas test, local anaesthetic before the blood gas test (without that apparently wrist injections hurt like a fucker), and the thinner stuff).

You big girl. I have thick skin, then they couldn't find a suitable vein, so I was stabbed more than that in five minutes.

I suspect every tabloid journo knew exactly what he was getting at. But they're never likely to go "maybe he's right, we are vultures!" were they. Much easier to say "FRENCH MENTAL SAYS WEIRD THING"

Best of luck for Monday then. Keep posting here - I only see your blog posts in Reeder at home, so not during the day.

What's your concern around travelling - flying while on Warfarin, potential DVT complications (if they find a clot but don't identify a source), or not being able to get insurance?

DVT complications mostly. Once you've had one clot, you're at risk of more, and obviously flying multiplies that risk many times over. Warfarin should guard against it, but it's still a concern.

Nah, the needles are just for now, thank god (they really bloody hurt and/or I'm a big baby). If I am diagnosed with a clot, long term care will be oral tablets.

I concur with the wellwishers. Please get well, Rich, I hope it's just patheticness on your part :)

I have a tummy nay :( I have struggled to eat properly for a few weeks now. More or less every time i have a meal, my stomach feels like it's having a battle with itself. I have been drinking Milk of Magnesia (bleugh!!) and reducing what i eat to basically next to fuck all. I haven't had a meal since Friday and last night I had a sausage and a piece of toast and this morning, my stomach was like a huge bloated rock :( Urgh.....time for a doctors appointment I think.

On the bright side, this is exactly the sort of thing that gets you well accustomed to it. After a year of having to stick myself 3 times a week, I am now not even slightly bothered by needles.

It's not the needle as such with this. It feels like it has an acidic carrier, and the dose is fairly high -- 125mg or so -- so it stings like a motherfucker for about 30 minutes after the jab.

Doctor Glyndwr wrote:
Last Tuesday I went to the doctor's with a dry, hacking cough I'd had for a couple of weeks and get every so often. They started to chase a diagnosis of asthma. I did peak flow readings, but they were all super high, suggesting no asthma; plus Ventolin didn't help at all. Over the weekend, I started getting breathless with a 100+ bpm heart when doing anything physical at all - even walking up stairs. I'm also fatigued and achey all the time and I still have the cough.

At a doctor's appointment today, she was a hair's breadth away from sending me to hospital for observation for the breathlessness and high heart rate I am suffering from, following an ECG (which was clear) and Pulseox test she didn't like the look of. As it was, I got a strong dose of antibiotics in case it's a bacterial infection, and I have to go back for more tests tomorrow. If I disappear, I'm in hospital. Next most likely diagnosis is a viral infection; then obscure-ish variants of pneumonia etc, and some way out on the probability curve after that is a blood clot on the lung. I'm statistically at a very low risk of that, but I'm a bit alert to the possibility because of recent events.

So, umm, yeah.


Have you improved at all, Rich? Believe it or not (I didn't post about it on here in case it heightened my worry with people throwing suggestions at me and stuff), but around my birthday in December, I had EXACTLY, EXACTLY the same symptoms. Went to A&E and everything was "fine" - they did all of the tests on me that they did on you it seems (ECG, etc). It turns out (after a couple of weeks of this shit), that I had a bacterial respiratory infection which was making me a tad breathless, but anxiety was causing this to snowball and the more worrying symptoms. I'd basically worked myself into a state where I was convinced I was having a heart attack/lung cancer/doom. I was working myself into full-on anxiety attack mode sub-consciously (for various reasons - well, reasons I suspect were the reasons - which I won't go into), then I'd realise when the symptoms came on, and I'd consciously work myself up even more with the doom-thoughts.

It was absolutely awful. I was up all night a few times genuinely worried that if I fell asleep, I'd be dead by morning. I'm okay now pretty much. I hope in your case, it's the same deal.

Ah bugger, sorry man - I'll go read up - I kinda jumped in after seeing your initial post. Hope you're alright.

edit: Read up, again, I genuinely hope everything turns out alright - you must be pretty stressed about it all. I wish I could offer you some advice, but the best I can come up with is: relax - there's very little you can do yourself as far as waiting on medical gubbins is concerned.
