Desperately Wanting IV Fluid
Has anyone been able to get an IV from an Urgent Care etc? I’ve been so badly dehydrated and I can’t keep much down. I got food poisoning a few weeks ago and it completely F*&%#? up my stomach. I’ve been drinking water every ten minutes but I haven’t been able to keep down my electrolyte drinks, only my vitassium pills and extra salt on the mashed potatoes I can eat.
But because of the horrible experiences I’ve had with ERs, Urgent Cares, and Drs I have trouble believing anyone will believe me and help. Especially since I don’t think my doctor ever put POTs as an official diagnosis on my chart.
And on top of that I’m hypoglycemic (non-diabetic) but haven’t been diagnosed. So I’m dealing with both but can’t seem to get help. And getting my family to want to take me to the dr has been… awful. They are treating me like it’s nothing. Just my Lyme disease acting up. And our insurance ran out yesterday and doesn’t start again until the 12th.
I’m so done. So sick of this. The only ones that seem to care are the dog and cat. (And I’m sure some of you all on here too. Hence this post…)
