I'm gonna get a little personal here, so guys, please leave the room. :)
I had a gastrograph today. Horrible prep yesterday, along with fasting. The worst part was what I had to drink.
They got the test started today and the pain was so bad that I almost blacked out. My hands started tingling and going numb, then my legs, feet, stomach, and then my mouth. I was tongue tied and coudn't talk right. My hands were all curled up and I coudn't move my thumbs. It was scary and horrible. I was on the edge of passing out. So, they quickly took me to ER.
Don't know the test results yet, but it was a nightmare day! they had to stop the test and take me to the ER cause I had a reaction to the pain and went into contractions and hyperventilating. They said I was having contractions, a spell and hyperventilating.
They gave me something under my tongue in ER to calm me down and stop the hyperventilating. They also did an EKG and blood work. All was fine except my potassium was low and they gave me an Rx for that.
Honestly, my first thought was that if my hands stayed curled up like that, that I wouldn't be able to create my dolls and stitcheries anymore! That would be horrible to me, so I was thrilled when it started to go away.
Never in my life do I want to go through that again. Anything close to it, I will tell them to sedate me.
After all this, I rewarded myself at the hospital coffee shop with a strawberry/banana smoothie. :0)
Now, I wait for the test results and see if I have to have surgery.
I told ya this was personal. I'll get busy doing some needle punch so I can talk about something else next time. :)
