I started to feel naseus over the weekend, which is not unusual for me, always fighting that, meds are tough on my tummy. By 10 am yesterday, I started to actually throw up and 1 hr later diarreah just started flowing. I was too sick to be embarassed, called the ambulance, they nedded to take my pjs off to clean me and I just said "cut it off!" I don't let people see me nude a lot, some of my scars make ME gasp when I see them. I didn't care, was not stop fluid exit.
Then I started to shake violently, was cold and super clammy. Thats when blood started to be pulled and tested and immediately a second IV was open and 2 lt of warm liquid was hand pushed from the bag. I was severely dehydrated, another problem I deal with regularly but was starting to go into shock.
1 lt was added when those were pushed in, just a drip.
I was sooo cold, they thought I might be infectios, the staff at StMaryCorwin was awesome.
When I tell people I have MS, they usually say that MS doesn't kill you and altho theoretically true, infections kill the chronically ill.
I live in severe pain, mostly in stoic, "I am though" way, if I try not to verbalize or hassle caretakers and first responders but yesterday I yelling them to give me something to at least stop the vomiting but they can't until a doc writes the orders (I know that) but I was actually screaming "HeLp Me!"
The healing finally began with meds, things slow down and was taken to cat scan, he said my intestins were just filled with watery waste, thats why I couldn't control it. Test after test came in bordeline, nothing screaming out that it was the problem.
Thankfully it was not contagious, maybe a flu or food poisoning. My husband is terrified he will be next, everyone told me as I was finally released (including doc) that they felt so bad for me, clearly struggling. I could see it on everyones face, they were very worried.
When my naseua started I thought, nope I can't take it. I remembered when undiagnosed and had bladder stones and that was so horrible, I just CAN'T keep my self together when I get regularl illness, this is how I am going to die? Food poisoning?
