Won't be here for a few days 5 hours in ER

I was in the ER for 5 hours last night. after all the tests (blood, urine, EKG) they came up with vertigo and gastritis. Today my eyes are very sensitive and being on the computer is hard. I will be off work until at least next tues when I see my regular Dr. He wants the pills to start working and in case I have problems over the weekend. I never had this before. It's the pits. All I want to do today is rest. I was tested for heart, kidney, liver problems, and infection. Thank God those all came out good. I was like this since last friday and was getting worse. I work at a hospital  (housekeeping) and a co-worker who does ekg's took me to the ER and had a nurse check my blood pressure. It was 170 something over 86. The nurse told me that I really should go through triage and have a dr check me out as this was already 6 days of being sick like this. I sure didn't think I would be there for 5 hours!
So I will try to read your blogs when I can, but if I don't leave comments it's not because I don't care. Today I can only stand to be on the computer for short times.


  1. Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I hope you get to feeling better.

  2. Sorry to hear that you are poorly. Hope you manage to get plenty of rest and enjoy some quiet time to get well again.

  3. So sorry to hear that you're feeling so bad. Get plenty of rest and follow the docs orders, and I'm sure you'll be better in no time.
